|Serving a prison term, whatever the reason may be, is a very traumatic experience for inmates. Especially women. Prison inmates mostly find themselves without anything productive to engage in while behind bars. This leads to lack of personal development& employment opportunity after release. Through creative partnerships, we help provide vocational trainings and skills development programmes to male and female inmates,
which help them secure employment as well as financial independence post-release.
Presently, we are working in four prisons:
|The ongoing activities can be divided under following categories:|
We provide vocational training to men & women prison inmates in different fields of work like cooking, stitching, jute craft, painting, dancing, music, etc., so that post-release they may utilise their skills to reintegrate in to society.
