Inmates graduate

Monday, August 04, 2014

REHABILITATING inmates can be seen as a daunting task but it only takes a strong will and self determination to receive a certificate while being locked behind bars.

Selected inmates from the Suva Corrections Centre and the Women's Corrections Facility completed a one-week training on small engine repair and basic computing courses on Friday.

Officer in Charge at the Suva Corrections Institute, Deputy Superintendent Apimeleki Taukei said learning was for everyone and the participants should take pride in the fact that they had done something useful while serving their time.

Australian couple Dave and Judy Huttons had been travelling to Fiji with the positive mission that inmates can start their own businesses if they are fully prepared for the outside world.
