We started the program at 9 a.m. with the look in to the project chess on the streets, in which was involved RUBIKON Centrum and which can be inspiration for other partners. In the project there are involved prisoners who produce playing chess pieces within carpentry workshops. The project has great publicity.
According to the planned program, we went through organizational things and also RUBIKON Centrum including its employers and services where introduced to all participants.
After that we made a walk through the challenges of preparation for release – output number 4. We wrote SWOT ANALYSIS and discuss its results.
After Lunch we visited Saint Charles Borromeo Home which is unique project in Europe where the Prison for female convicts is within the Home. Similarly as in the past, they offer the convicts occupation in the kitchen, in the laundry room, and in providing the necessary cleaning of the Home. But in addition, inmates may also help in the wards. They organise St. Zdislava Training Courses for them in the Home so that they may become qualified medical orderlies.
After that we had a discussion about visit, we finished about 7 p.m.
Each organisation presented 2 methods which will later develop within Output 2 as an opportunity in preparation for release form the prison. The methods are described later in the booklet.
After lunch we continued with presentations of Output 2 discussions about the presented methods. We also discussed mid-term project evaluation, evaluation of the meeting, output 1 – Trainings in the prison and output 4 – Focus on Freedom before we closed the program.
