An important process in resettling ex-offenders after serving a long sentence for crimes of murder or manslaughter is conducting reconciliation between the ex-offenders the family of the ex-offenders and the families of the victims. Reconciliation takes place before the inmate is released. During reintegration, continuous mediation and reconciliation need to take place for the creation of a peaceful and calm environment for harmonious co-existence. Recently, Faraja Foundation handled a case involving four family members who had initially been imprisoned.
We took interventions in reconciliation and escorting them back to the society in partnership with prisons where they were well received. This process requires continuous support from different stakeholders to complete the restorative justice process. In supporting the reintegration process, Faraja Foundation sends its well-experienced case officers to see through the process. We call upon various stakeholders to join our Community Adaptation Initiatives to help resettle the ex-offenders.
