Prisoner Golden Oldies in tears

Fiji Corrections claim to have the lowest recidivism rates in the OECD. Their transformation of prisoner’s lives is through education, trades training, officer-prisoner collaborations and post-release support programmes.

For the first time ever, Golden Oldies were invited to meet and converse with the prisons own Golden Oldies inmates. Tears flowed as the prison ‘Golden Oldies’ within their barbed wire compound were able to chat, be encouraged and pray with the team.

Following this, the Prison brass band and cultural war-like dancers, comprising of officers and prisoners together performed and then mingled with Golden Oldies. A moving experience.
