Inside-out Outside-in Books Project


A project of the University of South Africa Corrections Interest Group.

Books allow offenders to participate in the world of civil discourse, ideas, learning and imagination from which they are physically excluded. Books have the potential to morally and intellectually elevate offenders above their confined circumstances and to prepare them for a life after incarceration. [1]

[2]YOGA and Pollsmoor Prison may seem an incongruous match, but more than 90 inmates are taking advantage of weekly classes offered by volunteers keen to effect positive change.
