Skill development training programme for jail inmates started in Bongaigaon
In Assam, a 3- month skill development training programme has been started in Bongaigaon district for the jail inmates. The purpose of the programme is to provide opportunities for the prison inmates to engage themselves in fruitful pursuits during the term of their sentence. Besides the main objective, the course is expected to increase the employability potential of the prisoners after their release. It is said that the prisoners are not in jail to suffer, but to change and reform and to lead a dignified life after release from the jail. Apart from the skill development training, a month long Yoga training session will also begin for the jail inmates in Bongaigaon district.
