Welcome to the Yellow Ribbon Project

YRP Logo

 

The Yellow Ribbon Project (YRP) seeks to engage the community in giving ex-offenders a second chance at life and to inspire a ripple effect of concerted community action to support ex-offenders and their families.

YRP spearheaded by the Community Action for the Rehabilitation of Ex-Offenders (CARE) Network, aims to improve the effectiveness of rehabilitation of ex-offenders in Singapore through rehabilitation initiatives to help them reintegrate into society.

Through the YRP, we also hope to generate greater awareness of the need for second chances, inspires more Singaporeans to accept ex-offenders into their lives and encourages more to come forward to demonstrate support for the campaign.
