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

- Rehabilitation and community integration of marginalized groups, and support of women in all matters of equality to economically empower them and eradicate the stigmatization of women as females with incomplete rights.
- Defending women’s rights, promoting gender equality, and fighting sexual violence.
- Life works in compliance with the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW, 1979). Life also adheres to and implements the texts resulting from the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo (1994) and the World Conference on Women in Beijing (Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action 1995).
- Economic empowerment of all women, particularly former prisoners, immigrants, and victims of violence.
