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

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.
