Uganda Reentry Guide Project:
We are glad to report that Rebecca Ginsburg, our partner from the University of Illinois USA conducted a successful feasibility study on a prospective research about Uganda Reentry Guide; the research was held from 19th to 23rd 2018. It was a very interactive and educative week. Rebecca was part of the formation of the Advisory Committee (AC). In addition to that, she interacted with people in prison and formerly incarcerated individuals; where they addressed their needs, hopes and concerns.
One of the highlights of the visit was the openness of the people in prison as they shared their needs, hopes and concerns about the guide. For example they hope that the guide shall help others to better accept formerly incarcerated individuals; and one of their concerns was funding sources and administrative structure.
