The Human Connection Project – From Social Exclusion to Social Inclusion’, a Dutch initiative of ‘Prison Watch’ for foreign prisoners (2020)
The Dutch NGO, PrisonWatch, has pioneered an innovative project working with Alphen aan den Rijn Prison to improve the daily life of its’ foreign national prisoners. The PrisonWatch team of prison staff have developed a network of volunteers and hosts who they train and support to work with the 8,000 prisoners who pass through the prison annually. The project has become a valued resource for Alphen aan den Rijn Prison so much so that Prison Watch has plans to extend its work to other Dutch prisons in time next year.
Attached is the PrisonWatch Activity Plan 2021 describing their work and plans for expansion along with a presentation booklet entitled ‘PrisonWatch The Human Connection – From Social Exclusion to Social Inclusion.
