The Restore Justice Healing Hope Trust

Restore is a charity set up in South Africa by Lisa Marqua-Harries and Lindsey Pettit-Lee in 2012 to deliver Restorative Justice courses for young offenders in Cape Town’s Pollsmoor Prison. After many years of voluntary prison work Lisa and Lindsey decided a consistent and systematic program would best tackle the challenges of these young offenders and so Restore was born. Both feel restorative justice encapsulates the gospel message of restoration and reconciliation and their faith is at the centre of their work. Bible parables are often used for drama’s within the programme too. A holistic approach is adopted within the time in prison.
