RAW | Reclaim Another Woman

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the contribution RAW makes towards reintegrating women back into the community and commend the programme’s objective to help prevent intergenerational patterns of offending. We value this service as it provides wrap around support for women….To reduce reoffending is a big challenge and we welcome the opportunity to take that journey with you, to continuously improve our collective efforts and make a difference for women who need it.”

Stephen Cunningham, Director Offender Employment and Reintegration, Department of Corrections

Transforming women from disadvantage into focused achievers; intent on/committed to creating new futures for themselves and their whanau.

  Driving real social change and choice for socially disadvantaged demographics

RAW offers socially disadvantaged women a pathway forward to a different lifestyle through an unprecedented level of wrap around support and education. The benefits to New Zealand don’t stop there because in creating a highly functional parent, RAW also enables the next generation to be loved, protected and nurtured though the education system, creating a new cycle of opportunity and contribution.

RAW | Recidivist Offenders | Criminals | Prison | Transforming Women | Corrections | Incubation

 “Imagine a world where we invested more money in educating incarcerated people than punishing them. What if the children who need the most love are given mental health services and counselling instead of being funnelled into adult penal institutions?… I pray the administration will see that the people in prison are people. They can be educated, and they can change.”


Learning is what creates change.


Educational access for at-risk youth deters criminal activity. Educational access for inmates engages a depressed population. And, educational access ameliorates the harsh economic realities experienced in a life after prison. But this deep, systemic discrimination has prevented this population from education, and thus, alternative career pathways.


 We have a responsibility – an imperative – to be vocal on social issues large and small.


Meet The RAW Women

The RAW women are a diverse group – they are all ages and ethnicities, but the one thing they have in common is that they have all come from severely dysfunctional backgrounds, and they are all looking to change their lives through the RAW proposition. Click here to read more about these women.
