The project aims to train 105 women prisoners released from Minya Public Prison, on different vocational activities, such as sewing, knitting and ready-made garments, drying and packing of vegetables; baking and confectionery and packing tissue paper; thus enabling them to a decent stable life.

The project will also include a psycho-social rehabilitation program for the beneficiaries and at the same time will hold meetings with employers from business and industries to change their attitudes and perceptions regarding employment of former prisoners.
