Prisons in Togo are known for their deplorable prison conditions. The average occupancy rate is 165%. The project targets 4 prisons in this country, namely: Lomé, Aného, Tsévie and Kara. For example, the occupancy rate in the Lomé prison gets as high as 310% and that of Tsévie- near 400%! This prison overpopulation is largely due to the absence of a true reintegration policy and therefore to a high rate of relapses (over 60%).

 

For many years, the National Fraternity of Prisons in Togo- our local partner -has been engaged in a reintegration policy for detainees in the form of establishing workshops in the country’s prisons. However, this effort is limited to a minority of prisoners. 253 detainees have been trained since 2010. The present project aims at extending this initiative and training 500 prisoners in 3 years (350 detainees and 50 women of detaines in the second year).

  • 50 ADDITIONAL BENEFICIARY DETAINEES.
  • CONSTRUCTION OF LATRINES IN THE WORKSHOPS.
  • 50 DETAINEE WIVES WERE INVOLVED IN PRODUCTION SALES.
  • SUPPORT TO POST-PRISON REINTEGRATION.
  • Afford the opportunity to 500 prisoners (350 in the second year) to obtain professional training in prison (200% increase in trained detainees)
  • Improve the economic situation of the prisoners and their families through revenue generated through workshop products
  • Facilitate socio-professional reintegration and reduce the rate of prisoner relapses
  • Involved women’s detaines
  • Sensitize and push for actions on the part of engaged organisms in Togo and Switzerland
