The second batch of Janjanbureh Prisoners numbering 13 on Tuesday were certified after undergoing a rehabilitation program organized by Sycamore Tree project. The activity is carried out in collaboration with the Prisons Fellowship of The Gamhia.
The project is meant to rehabilitate inmates so as to prepare them for life after prison.
According to the project coordinator, Abdourahman Camara, the whole idea is for the offenders to be conscious of the crimes they have committed, forgive themselves and later seek forgiveness from the victims they have offended.
In this regard, the beneficiaries took turns to deliver their own testimonies and commitments. They also described prison as a rehabilitation, refocused and repreparation centre to right the wrongs one may have committed.
As part of the program, the governor, Hon. Abba Sanyang prepared a lunch for the inmates and their officials as usual.
