This year, in observance of Human Rights Day in South Africa on the 21st of March, team member Mbongiseni Mdakane was invited to REAL Talk with Anele on SABC 3 to discuss life after incarceration and the meaning of rehabilitation and desistance. We are so proud of Bongi, his achievements and all his efforts contributed towards Inside-out!

Last week Inside-out participated in the Research & Innovation Week at Unisa, by collaborating with Dr Baz Dreisinger, the Founding Academic Director of the Prison-to-College Pipeline at the City University of New York, to host a seminar regarding education in the correctional environment. The title of the seminar was “Can a Prison-to-College Pipeline be built in South Africa? Reflections on Higher Education, Incarceration, Re-entry and Access to Opportunity.”
This exciting program, the Prison-to-College Pipeline (P2CP) program, operates just as its name implies, as a pipeline funneling prison students into college in the community to complete their degrees upon release.
