Juvenile Delinquency Reformation Project Our Vision
Our Mission
Prisoners Rights Project | Juvenile Delinquency Reformation Project | Gender Equality in Rural Cameroon Project

The Juvenile Delinquency Reformation Project carries out a needs assessment survey in Buea Prison and at the Boastal Institute with the objective of finding ways to support the re-educative services provided by the Boastal Institute and help the juveniles become better citizens.

The JDRP involves full support of the Boastal Institute, the Juveniles and other stakeholders to better identify the priority concerns of the needs of this category of detainees.

Following the investigation and identification of the said needs, the project creates individual files for each of the juveniles detained in the regular prison with the aim to provide the needed assistance with the collaboration of the Boastal Institute. Then the project builds a network of associations and people willing to create opportunities for a purposefully reinsertion into society of juveniles in different fields. The final step is the execution of such a project with the involvement of the Boastal Institute, the juveniles and all stakeholders.

Involving juveniles in our project activities aims to improve their development, both physically and psychologically. The project aims to turn a reformation center into a more profitable rehabilitative and productive structure: the wider society will benefit in the long term, while all individuals enjoy What does the role involve?
