Most of the times, the high recidivism among convicts incarcerated in the cross border area penitentiaries is generated by the employers’ reluctance to employ former inmates. That fact led to identifying the common need to train inmates in an area that would give them additional chances to ensure their livelihood and to be self-employed. The new solution this project proposed is to help the inmates become small agriculture producers and it offers them an additional opportunity to social reintegration after being released from prison. The proposed innovation is feasible also due to the fact that in the Banat cross border area the population holds own agriculture lands that are highly fertile.
