Inauguration of IT Room in "La Chorrera" Prison Centre
On 24 February 2014, the General Office of the Prison System of Panama collaborated with UNODC ROPAN to inaugurate an IT Room in "La Chorrera" Prison Centre, with the capacity to train up to 15 students simultaneously. This IT Room was carried out within the framework of the Project "Supporting Prison Reform in Panama".
The space is fully equipped with modern hardware and software, facilitating basic computer-skills training to prepare inmates for better social reintegration. It is supported by the Prison Ministry of Hosanna, and courses will be conducted by facilitators of the National Institute of Professional Training for Human Development (INADEH, according to its acronym in Spanish).
It is also noteworthy to mention that the physical and electrical conditioning carried out on the IT Room was performed by the same inmates housed in the prison.
