Basic needs for 100 Ex-Women Prisoners In Uganda

by WOMEN & CHILDREN AID IN THE PRISONS OF UGANDA

Summary

The Ex-women inmates with their children from the remote prisons in Uganda lack basic needs such as basic health care, food, clothing, housing/shelter etc in addition to unemployment and the high illiteracy levels. Introducing the above services to them immediately after custody will greatly improve their standards of living through setting up a rehabilitation home for startup before their final reentry into other communities.

Challenge

The Ex-women inmates with their children from the remote prisons face a variety of problems most of which concern their individual lives. These include:- High illiteracy rates, unemployment which leads to poor health, no food due to insufficient funds, housing, rejection by their own relatives, high HIV prevalence in search for odd jobs, untimely death. However, WOCAP UGANDA receiving and offering them with these services for the first 3 months after custody, would minimize or stop these rates.

Solution

WOCAP UGANDA will receive the women inmates and their children from the remote prisons after their discharge into our rehabilitation home where we plan to provide them with the following services. These include:- housing, Basic health care services, clothes and bedding, water, food, reconciliation services, vocational Training activities like sewing, knitting, crafts etc for a period of approximately 2-3 months before their final re-entry into other communities.

Long-Term Impact

While counseling and introduction of life skills to the ex-women inmates will greatly minimize/eliminate stigma as well as improve their inter-personal relationships with others in the community, introduction to the essentials in English language and grammar plus the vocational Training activities will resolve the issue of illiteracy and unemployment respectively. This will further provide them with some incomes most especially after WOCAP UGANDA rehabilitation home.
