Highlights 2022

  • IMPACTO DE LA LEY 2292 DE 2023 EN LAS MUJERES CABEZAS DE FAMILIA PRIVADAS DE LA LIBERTAD

    La Ley 2292 de 2023 marca un hito al establecer el primer mecanismo sustitutivo de la prisión con un enfoque de género. Es importante diseñar escenarios diferenciados para la ejecución de la sanción penal, especialmente para mujeres que han cometido delitos por su situación de marginalidad y que desempeñan roles como cabezas de familia (Ministerio de Justicia y del Derecho, 2023).

  • PROMOVEMOS LA SALUD MENTAL

    Mujeres privadas de la libertad en la Cárcel Distrital de Bogotá recibieron acompañamiento psicosocial para enfrentar y gestionar eventos traumáticos asociados a cualquier tipo de abuso. En estas sesiones, se abordaron diversos temas cruciales, incluyendo el impacto del trauma en el cerebro y el cuerpo, una introducción a la atención consciente, la comprensión del sistema límbico, el manejo de la vergüenza y el desarrollo de habilidades de afrontamiento.

  • ACOMPAÑAMOS A JÓVENES DEL SISTEMA DE RESPONSABILIDAD PENAL PARA ADOLESCENTES

    Durante el segundo semestre de 2023, brindamos acompañamiento a jóvenes que cumplen una sanción en los Centros de Atención Especializada (CAE) de Bogotá y Popayán.

  • LA EDUCACIÓN COMO HERRAMIENTA CLAVE EN EL PROCESO DE RESOCIALIZACIÓN

    Proporcionamos fortalecimiento en habilidades blandas y técnicas con el objetivo de potenciar los procesos de empleabilidad y emprendimiento. Nuestro enfoque principal ha sido mejorar las condiciones de vulnerabilidad económica de los participantes, al mismo tiempo que buscamos incidir positivamente en la reducción de la reincidencia.

  • PRIVADOS DE LA LIBERTAD DE LA CÁRCEL MODELO DE BOGOTÁ FUERON CERTIFICADOS POR EL MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (MIT)

    La alianza con el Instituto de Justicia Educativa del Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) certificó a personas privadas de la libertad y al personal de guardia y administrativo de la cárcel La Modelo en Bogotá. Es la primera vez que el curso "Authenticity" se imparte fuera de Estados Unidos, representando un hito significativo para la educación carcelaria en América Latina.

  • INCLUSIÓN LABORAL PARA POBLACIÓN POSPENADA Y FAMILIARES DE PERSONAS PRIVADAS DE LA LIBERTAD

    Con el objetivo de fomentar la inclusión laboral de personas pospenadas y familiares de privados de la libertad, y alineándonos con el Objetivo de Desarrollo Sostenible ODS 8: Trabajo decente y crecimiento económico, hemos gestionado con éxito más de 100 vacantes laborales en colaboración con empresas comprometidas con la creación de segundas oportunidades.

  • APOYO JURÍDICO PARA NUESTROS BENEFICIARIOS

    Las asesorías jurídicas tuvieron un aumento significativo del 80%. Este incremento se dio en Pereira, Medellín, Valledupar y Bogotá, abordando diversas temáticas en distintas Unidades de Reacción Inmediata (URI) y centros carcelarios.

  • MÚSICA PARA EL ALMA

    1,590 personas privadas de la libertad recibieron un mensaje de esperanza, alegría, empatía y segundas oportunidades a través de la música en las cárceles de Picaleña en Ibagué, Jamundí, Quibdó, Distrital en Bogotá y Villa Hermosa en Cali. Este es el resultado de cómo la música puede convertirse en una herramienta poderosa para construir conexiones significativas.
