305 Inmates Graduate from Journey to Freedom Program at Belize Central Prison

A total of three hundred and five inmates at the Belize Central Prison graduated today from the Journey to Freedom program, a rehabilitation initiative hosted by the faith-based NGO the Belize Project in collaboration with the Kolbe Foundation. The program takes a biblical approach to rehabilitation by addressing issues such as self-worth, conflict resolution, and anger management, to prepare inmates to better reintegrate into society upon release. Beverly Totty, a team member of The Belize Project, explained that the curriculum of the program has been used globally for over 25 years and has been proven to assist prisoners with their rehabilitation. 

Norman Willacy, Director of the Journey to Freedom Program at the prison, said that inmates who complete the program are showing the prison, the judiciary, and society that they are serious about making a change. He stressed that completing the program does not impact their sentence, but that inmates who complete it are looked at in a different light by the parole board than those who don’t. 

Over five thousand inmates at the Belize Central Prison have graduated from the program.////
