Mission and objectives

Life Foundation for Development and Community Integration is a rehabilitation and reintegration institution for former prisoners. Life was founded by a former female prisoner and a group of lawyers and volunteers. It offers rehabilitation programs for released prisoners to prevent recidivism, protect society, and rebuild the life of the individuals released from prison. Our mission is to rebuild the life of former female prisoners and their families and to protect society through the rehabilitation and social reintegration of former prisoners, immigrants, and marginalized women, in order to prevent repeated violations, promote gender equality, and support women who are victims of community violence.

Main activities related to gender equality and women's rights
