Education & Upgrading

What is it about?

  • We believe education is instrumental in opening new doors to career opportunities and previously unimagined possibilities for an ex-offender. However, many ex-offenders’ dreams of pursuing an education are hampered due to a variety of reasons such as a lack of knowledge on upgrading opportunities, lack of family support and guidance, as well as financial constraints.
  • At SACA, we provide holistic support for our student-clients through our Education Support Programme with the hope that they remain motivated and focused till the successful completion of their studies.

Who is it for?

  • Ex-offenders who are keen on furthering their education to achieve their goals

The imposing gates of Changi Prison loomed large as I approached the all too famliar path and passed through them into freedom once more. As I hung up the phone and thought of home, my eyes welled up with tears that were dammed for years. It is said that forgiveness is the best gift to receive – this is true. I was finally free in every sense of the word. The reconciliation with father delivered a never before known quiet to my guilt-ridden and once-tortured soul.
