04 Oct Computer courses for inmates of women prisons in Serbia
Since November 2011, International Aid Network (IAN) has been conducting computer courses for inmates in the women’s prison of Serbia, in Pozarevac.
Programs that prepare inmates for the release from prison and for their post-penal adjustment and rehabilitation are important for their successful reconciliation. Often they do not receive any assistance from the state regarding employment or resolving other difficulties that hinder their inclusion into mainstream society.
By equipping them with the IT skills necessary for being successful in today’s work environment, IAN Telecentre is contributing in creating more opportunities for women prisoners and is helping them with a successful transition and social inclusion upon their release, thus also preventing re-offending.
