The project was implemented in 2 penitentiaries by the Department of Penitentiary Institutions (DIP), subordinated to the Ministry of Justice, and development partners.
Accordingly, juveniles from Penitentiaries no. 10 Goian and no. 13 Chisinau attended communication courses and learned the skills of chef, baker, barber and shoemaker for one year.
