The reintegration journey of an ex-offender/ex-drug addict is never an easy one. There are several issues he will have to address to achieve a successful reintegration back into the society.
At The New Charis Mission (hereafter known as “TNCM”), reintegration is more than addressing employment, where they will be staying after completing the programme and well being. Training and education aids in the skill development and confidence. Reintegration encompasses the social, physical, emotional development of the individual.
The Overseas Exchange Programme of TNCM adds to the development of the individual’s social and emotional development. Such trips are both Service-Learning and Experiential-Learning for them. Opportunities are given for them to share their life-transformation stories encouraging the inmates and rehabilitating ex-offenders. This, often resulting in their confidence and self-esteem levels enhanced.
