Giving Ex-Convicts a Second Chance

Kausalya Devi, Malaysian Prisons Department

16-Aug-16 15:00

Giving Ex-Convicts a Second Chance

With the twin goals of equipping our inmates with skills to increase their employability upon release and reduce the rate of recidivism, the Malaysian Prisons Department started a vocational training initiative called the Industrial Prisons Programme in 2013. Three years later, more than 1,700 inmates have completed the programme and joining me today to explain how the programme works is Kausalya Devi, Deputy Director of Inmate Management at the Malaysian Prisons Department.
