About the Yellow Ribbon Project

The Yellow Ribbon Project (YRP) is a national public engagement campaign aimed at changing society’s mindset in giving ex-offenders a second chance in life. The community initiative aims to create awareness of the need to give second chances to ex-offenders, generate acceptance of ex-offenders and their families in the community, and inspire community action to support the rehabilitation and reintegration of ex-offenders into society.

The initiative was started in 2004 by the Community Action for the Rehabilitation of Ex-Offenders (CARE) Network, and former President of Singapore, the late S.R. Nathan, launched the campaign at the Yellow Ribbon Project Charity Concert.
