Evaristus Shikongo Correctional Facility holds annual choir competition for offenders


Offenders serving time at the Evaristus Shikongo Correctional Facility near Tsumeb frequently turn to God for hope and the institution's annual choir competition allows offenders a platform to worship. 

The nbc visited the facility as offenders prepare for this year's choir competition.

Being in a correctional facility gives offenders time to reevaluate their lives and consider making better decisions.

Often, offenders develop or strengthen existing relationships with God - and what better way to worship than through song?
