The Project

A proposal focused on helping inmates self-reflect and prepare for release by giving them the tools to become aware of their current strengths and needs at different levels.

This project therefore proposes to use Design thinking processes to create self-awareness, empathy, and creativity to help inmates to chart their future course, thus enabling them to lead an independent and law-abiding life.

After having drawn up a picture of the situation of people released from detention during the pandemic, each partner conducts a survey among this public. The analysis of all the information collected from the questionnaires is carried out by MHE, our British partner.

We are looking for volunteers to participate in the project, prison visitors, lawyers, wardens, managers…. Finally, any person who would like to contribute to the project.
