The penitentiaries in Romania and Serbia have two very important missions – to ensure custody of incarcerated persons and to support the social reintegration of inmates. The reintegration of former inmates, especially on the labour market, is difficult in the cross border area on one hand due to lack of jobs, very low salaries and mainly discrimination upon employment. This project envisages to prove practical knowledge and skills to the inmates by a non-formal education program in the area of producing dry fruit, vegetables, herbs, and medicinal plants. By this project, we are increasing the chance of inmates to become small agriculture producers. At the same time, by organizing two events of promoting employment chance equality concerning former convicts, we want to draw the attention of the local community and business environment in that area on the importance of that aspect for diminishing the recidivism and increasing the safety of communities.
