Khulisa is a South-African charity now working in London to help minimise the amount of youths involved in crime. I spotted an article about Khulisa in the Evening Standard a couple of months ago and it’s funny actually I got so into it that I missed my stop! Khulisa work to keep youngsters out of prison but unlike other services, they offer an extensive and well-structured programme and a well-implemented mentoring service. The programme reiterates safer and more acceptable ways of venting hidden or built up anger and frustration as well as helping young offenders realise the impact their crimes have on other people from all angles and points of view. There is definitely a group of people out there that are not being heard and are also very misunderstood because they do not know how to deal with events that have affected them in the past. What Khulisa seem to be doing is putting these guys into something like a boot camp focusing on changing bad behavior, it’s really inspiring.
