Following the research conducted by Representatives of the Malta Foundation for the Well-being of Society (MFWS), the Ministry for Justice, Equality and Governance, and the Ministry for Education and Sport, it has resulted that there is an inherent need to change the system in respect of restorative justice. Restorative Justice seeks reconciliation by encouraging the use of basic skills such as listening, understanding and talking to truly understand how the problem can be amended.
The Malta Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society strongly believes primarily in investing in children and young people, to ensure a sustainable and long-term mentality shift for the whole of our society.
That is why the aim of this initiative is to ensure that children, from their early years, are empowered with the values of respect, empathy and understanding.
The initiative will therefore create opportunities for raising awareness of the concept of Restorative Justice, as well as opportunities for the development of social, personal and communication skills and promote dialogue and reconciliation, to ensure holistic wellbeing of all.
