Description : This video is about the result of a collaboration between the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Prisons Department in Myanmar. Inaugurated on January 18th,2020 the centre has four fully-equipped workshops and classrooms where participants will learn vocational skills such as hairdressing, carpentry, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. The aim is to provide technical certification to 300-400 young detainees each year.
The building project was started in 2018, keeping in mind that reintegration into society can be a hard process for most detainees and particularly so for young detainees whose education may have been suspended midway.
The programme will run in cooperation with various agencies and organizations including the Myanmar Business Executives Association (MBEA), which will offer entrepreneurship training.
The ICRC’s cooperation with the Prisons Department has evolved over the years to include technical support, public health and better access to basic services alongside the core work of addressing needs of all detainees and helping them maintain contact with their families.
“Since 2013, more than 50 projects have been implemented by the Prisons Department at Mandalay Central Prison with the ICRC support. Over the years, these projects have progressively adapted from addressing essential needs such as clean water and sanitation, to providing services including education, improving contact with families and vocational training. In 2019, the ICRC’s staff visited more than 47,000 detainees in 24 prison visits across Myanmar. The ICRC remains committed to supporting the work of the national prison service and providing expert advice in the fields of water management, hygiene, sanitation, health and ensuring respect for judicial guarantees.
