• Help us end the cycle of poverty and crime

    We turn lives around by giving technology and entrepreneurship opportunities to offenders, ex-offenders and at-risk youth

  • Buy handcrafted gifts and support our work

    Our students contribute to community projects and to the environment by making beautiful recycled jewellery


Poverty and crime are crippling South Africa:

The world's eighth highest prison population

Youth unemployment often exceeds 80%

Reoffending exceeds 80%

Our solution is designed and led by ex-offenders

We believe you cannot end poverty or crime in isolation. One feeds on the other. We offer aspirational technology skills that compete with crime and lift people out of poverty. And we offer them to offenders, ex-offenders and at-risk youth.
