Thank you, Bremley, for your inspiring work all around the globe. This mission will improve the lives of thousands. Giving these women agency through education and application of new skills will reduce recidivism and extreme poverty amongst the beneficiaries. From a childhood developmental perspective, please consider some if the following during planning and implementation:
*Most women learn about healthy childhood development from their family and social network. They are cut off from that information while in prison. *Teach the women about developmental stages of childhood and give activities to foster normal developmental growth. *Donations of toys and learning material are critical. Having access to a space for the children to socialize and play will be highly beneficial to social and cognitive development. Coordinating donations and making sure they get to where they were intended.
The benefit is these children will better integrate into school and society if their developmental needs are met.
