PRISON GRADUATES 2020
24 June 2020
Normally, Byounique offers 4 counselling program in the young offenders prisons and 2 in the Chikwawa and Mangochi prisons, where we specifically target the young offenders. Regrettably, due to Corona, 3 prisons had to temporarily close their doors to visitors, including the Byounique teams, starting april 2020. In Bvumbwe, we could however continue our program, as we can use a wide space that enables safe social distance. This is further assisted as we have reduced our group size, Despite these measures, we still managed to successfully counsel 40 young offenders. We have high hopes that we can counsel at least the same number during the coming months, while safeguarding our youths via precautionary measures.
