The reconstruction and rehabilitation of the facilities on the pig farm within the prison complex in Spuž has begun.

This is a project that Help is supporting with the financial support of the German government within the project “Socio-economic empowerment of the Western Balkans “.

This is a continuation of Help’s successful cooperation with the Directorate for the Execution of Criminal Sanctions (UIKS), during which we assisted them in the programs of rehabilitation and resocialization of prisoners, as well as with the renewal of various work units that the prison in Spuž consists of.

Reconstruction and rehabilitation of facilities for pig farms in the prison complex will be performed by the company Entext engineering in the next five months.

The value of the works is 78.769,43 Euro.

In addition to the reconstruction of the pig farm within the project “Socio-economic empowerment of the Western Balkans SOE-5” Help will support UIKS with the renewal of a set of machines – for steel wire knitting and with a program for the rehabilitation of prisoners.

A six-month on-the-job training is underway as well within the same project, Help’s successful model of connecting the unemployed and employers, especially for deficit occupations, with a special focus on northern Montenegro which is the least developed part of the country, where unemployment is also highest.

Within that part of the program, a special certified training is planned for a part of the unemployed beneficiaries, after which those who have successfully passed it will receive a certificate of acquired knowledge and skills.
