Prisons Assistant Supt: Still hope for women prisoners

By CAROL MATROO Monday, December 9 2013

Assistant Supt of the Golden Grove Women’s Prison, Lourdes Jacobs, said the Angel Tree Programme was established nine years ago to ensure family lives were maintained.

The programme, held by the Trinidad and Tobago Prisons Service, in collaboration with the Prisons Fellowship of TT, allowed women and mothers incarcerated at the prison to interact with the families they were forced to leave behind.

Dozens of women got a chance to meet with their children and loved ones during an early Christmas celebration at the prison, Saturday.

The hall was beautifully decorated by the inmates in gold, red and green, under supervision by guards, but it was worthy of a gala celebration.

She said there were changes allowed for these women to have personal interaction with their families, to see how well their children had grown.

“They must see that although negative decisions were made in the past, there is still hope in the future,” Jacobs said.
