Open Second Opportunities Through Ongoing Mentoring and Training
Empowerment of the assisted residents is one of the main aspects that the Second Chance Foundation pays attention to. The Second Chance Foundation provides ongoing assistance and training to WBPs to realize a second chance for them to be better. This program is intended so that they can identify their potential and improve their skills.
Sewing, knitting, painting, making furniture, sculpting, making rattan handicrafts and cooking are several forms of skill training activities that we conduct, so that the assisted residents can be productive and independent, and ready to return to society in the future.
The chairman and founder of the Second Chance Foundation, Evy Amir Syamsudin, explained that in prison, there are more than 200 thousand prisoners throughout Indonesia who are of productive age and have to stop their lives because they have to serve sentences.
"We want to support the assisted residents to be able to make the most of their time with various positive activities. Their freedom may be taken away physically, but nothing can curb their creativity and imagination as human beings. In fact, there are a lot of products and works produced by the assisted people who have high artistic and economic value, ”he said.
The Second Chance Foundation with the support of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights wants to bridge the WBP and the public who generally lack knowledge and concern for the issue of WBP empowerment. We support the lofty goal of correctional institutions, namely to return individuals who have strayed to return to their dignity as whole human beings.
