Nepal: Prison-based Rehabilitation


Kathmandu, Nepal/March 2018:  A scoping mission to Nepal was undertaken in order to identify and validate programming opportunities vis-a-vis prison rehabilitation. 

The assessment mission constituted special visits to the three prison facilities of Nepal (Sunsari, Birgunj and Bhimphedi), followed by a de-briefing for the Acting Director-General (DG) of the Department of Prison Management (DPM) and a stakeholder consultation meeting in DPM Headquarters.

The mission included work towards channeling the observations and insights gained from the prison visits and consultations into a draft business plan for Nepal which is tailored to the national context.

The draft business plan will be shared with the Government of Nepal and the program is officially planned to begin from June 2018.
