This training program aims at sensitizing prison officials about prison reforms. While it is essential to bring physiological and psychological changes to the inmates, it is equally important that the prison officials develop a sense of empathy, learn how to resolve prison problems, learn how to see the inmates as work in progress and treat them like a human resource and help create an environment favourable for the emotional, social, physical and psychological development of the inmates.
By standardizing and sustaining the correctional programs, we also aim at the well-being of the prison officials through training and building capacities of various relevant issues. Currently, the training program is present in five states and numerous prison officials have been trained under the program.
The sessions were very educative both on a personal & professional level. I learnt a lot from different states. I really liked the session by Sh. Yahspal Singhal, DG sir which helped us to creatively handle and resolve problems. I particularly liked the Jail environment of Gurgaon Prison. IVF has done great work especially for children.
I have attended my first training outside my state and learnt a lot from this training. I was confused with the name of the training but at this platform I have actually seen and also got an opportunity to learn something. I learnt that we can be a change makers and Mr. Singh is role model for me I can see how prisoners can be mainstreamed and how we can treat prisoners like a human resource. Also, India Vision Foundation’s contribution is amazing I hope it gets replicated to other parts of the country also.
I have learnt about the phone calling system and Phoenix software. During our exposure to Rohtak & Jhajjar Prison I learnt about the drip irrigation system. The hospitality by the Prison administration was amazing in Haryana. Also, the work done by India Vision Foundation inside prison is amazing!
It is a practical training and I felt very motivated. There were two hosts one was the NGO and the other was Prison Administration. This training helped us to aim to do well and also after seeing this collaborative model of NGO & Prison I feel together we can make a lot of difference inside the prison.
