STORYLINE:

Justice and Correction Officer from the UN mission in Central African Republic (MINUSCA) visited Bimbo prison in capital Bangui to help women detainees cope better with their prison conditions.

"Once you get into jail, people tend to discriminate against you. We who work in the jail must show these women prisoners that prison is not an end in itself. Just because you're in prison doesn't mean you are a bad person. We chose women because this message can pass more easily with them, who are life-giving and educators," explains Aminata Diakhate, justice and correction officer for MINUSCA.

Bimbo detainees benefit from various training courses such as making shoes, clothes, making soap, or carrying key rings.

"These training courses allow them to manage prison stress. Because when you are in detention and you are confined all day in your cell, time becomes longer. There are negative thoughts, anxiety, prison weight. So, to avoid this, women follow activities ", says Aminata Diakhate, justice and correction officer for MINUSCA.

These training courses also aim to facilitate the reintegration of these women after their release from prison.
