Behind The Bars

BEHIND THE BARS

Programme of weekly classes at the Detention Centre for Minors in Addis Ababa. We work with children and young offenders accused of small crimes or minor offences such as petty theft, school drop–out, begging or drug consumption. We have noticed our work has a double impact: on the one hand, it helps children change their aggressive behaviour, recover their trust in themselves and be reinserted into society; and on the other hand, it facilitates and improves the relationship between the children and the centre staff.
