The trainings, aim at improving technical capacity of the SLCS with regards to human rights compliance is in line with the Government of Sierra Leone’s 2014 Correctional Services Act.
Sierra Leone is one of four pilot countries targeted by the UNDP project, which is supported by the Government of Norway and works with parliaments and parliamentarians to advance implementation of the WPS agenda (others are Jordan, Kyrgyzstan and Sri Lanka).
This year's theme was 'Leaving no one behind in the digital age' with a Krio localised slogan - Think Tumara.
Aimed overall at achieving the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions), the training is also intended to empower the court monitors to help popularize the Bail Regulations as enacted at district and community level in order to inform and enhance peoples’ awareness.
In addition to the recent revival of case review and prison courts, UNDP supports the ongoing rehabilitation of Makeni, Mafanta, and Sefadu Correctional Services.
Bangura was among 1,500 applicants who went through the college’s rigorous process and was amongst the six hundred who finally got admitted to the college for a place to study social work for a period of seven months. UNDP provided 150 scholarships out of the 551 graduates.
