Donate Books For Prisoners

We are always grateful for the support of the community in the form of donations of books for prison libraries.

We recommended these acquisitions for addition to all New Zealand prison libraries to support participants, and to accompany the Yoga Education in Prisons Trust Correspondence Course, or any other yoga, meditation or mindfulness program.
