The regional coordinators of the charitable organization FREE ZONE reached an agreement with the teachers of the Higher Professional School No.1 in the city of Rivne regarding the training of detainees at the beginning of the year.

For a month and a half, a group of 15 men, who are serving a sentence and have expressed a desire to acquire professional skills, have been learning theory. In connection with the quarantine measures due to COVID-19, the training had to occur remotely, so the FREE ZONE coordinators printed special textbooks for the convicts.

According to the results of the online exam, the lowest grade among this group of convicts is 7 out of 10.

Another month and a half of practice, and they will receive official diplomas.

The training became possible thanks to the cooperation of CO “Network of 100 Percent Life Rivne” with the administration of Gorodotsk correctional center and HPS No.1 in Rivne with the financial support of DVV International Ukraine within the framework of the project “Active for Education in Prisons 2.0”
