Heart-Work’s mission is to reach prisoners who have never been exposed to personal therapy, or have never been afforded the opportunity to learn about their personal emotions in a controlled and secure environment.
The Sub-Objective of this organisation is to curb the re-admittance rate that most prisoners experience after they get released from prison. Therefore, the Heart-Work programme does not only focus on a healthier way to combat the current regressed emotions whilst the participant are incarcerated, but also with coping mechanisms and integration skills to equip them to re-join society and better chance to access economic opportunities.
The AVI Community Trust’s financial support has been towards the following centres where the programme is implemented:
- Leeuwkop men
- Boksburg men
- Groenpunt men
- Krugersdorp men
- Zonderwater maximum centre – Men
- Zonderwater medium centre – Men
