THE National

Institute for Crime Prevention and the Reintegration of Offenders (Nicro) is one of South Africa’s oldest non-profit organisations and has been working with offenders of all ages since 1910.

Nicro is also reported to be at the forefront of South Africa’s unrelenting search for effective, lasting solutions to combating crime and creating safe, peaceful communities.

The De Beers’ Corporate Social Investment Committee has donated R22 000 towards the Safety Ambassadors Programme.

This programme is aimed at building youth capacity to break the cycle of crime, school by school and community by community.

Tony Vogt, social auxiliary worker at Nicro, said they were very grateful for the donation, because it would ensure that more young people were assisted in the programme.

“It is such an honour to know that De Beers is there to support non-profit organisations (NPOs) that are working in our communities, as more NPOs are faced with financial challenges,” Vogt said.

“De Beers will continue to contribute to worthy causes that are aimed at bettering our communities and impacting the future. We partner with organisations that are willing to be the agents for social change,” Judy Vilakazi, corporate affairs practitioner, said
