Knitting in Prison - New Zealand

Another rehabilitation-led programme that matches prison inmates with the benefits of knitting.

In New Zealand, the Prisoner's Aid and Rehabilitation Society works across the country to help inmates and their families through the stressed of incarceration.

As with other such groups, the inmates have been making beanie hats and other items, and these are donated to a local women's refuge.
