According to the report of Khaleej Times, in collaboration with the Danube Welfare Center, Dubai’s General Department of Punitive and Correctional Establishments assisted 98 prisoners in completing their English and Computer Science studies.
Colonel Jamila Al Zaabi, the head of the women’s prison, stated that the department established training programs each year in collaboration with internal and foreign partners. The programs are designed to educate and teach male and female convicts in a variety of subjects, such as science, languages, and crafts, and to help them find employment when their sentences are over.
Major Mohammad Abdullah Al Obaidly, the founder and chairman of the Danube Group, also explains how programs and courses are crucial to the rehabilitation of both male and female convicts at correctional facilities.
She continued by saying that male prisoners were trained in carpentry, blacksmithing, the production of fishing gear, mechanics, and painting. Female prisoners, on the other hand, take sewing, embroidery, sketching, and handicrafts lessons.
