Organization profile
Dignity in Detention (DIDE) is a Rwandan non-profit organization with extensive experience in training justice officials and working within Rwanda’s prison system to provide rehabilitative psycho-social support to detainees. DIDE has been conducting projects in Rwanda for 20 years to ensure that women and adolescents in detention enjoy the protection, mental care, and education they deserve. Over the years, and especially among young people in detention in Rwanda, we have become aware of the need to integrate a comprehensive approach to rehabilitation. Developing knowledge and know-how through schooling or vocational training programs is certainly essential in a perspective of reintegration. But that is not enough! Psychosocial and mental health support, including group activities and individual follow-up for cases of psychological distress, is the cornerstone of any educational and integration program. This is done through encouraging literacy and formal or informal school education; supporting vocational training; developing the acquisition of individual and social skills through psychosocial activities; stimulating the bonds of sociability and solidarity through sports, cultural, artistic activities; identifying, evaluating, and treating/referring individual cases of acute distress (mental health).
