In a groundbreaking effort to promote education and rehabilitation among incarcerated individuals, the Department of Computer Science & IT at Bhaderwah Campus, University of Jammu, in collaboration with the Prisons Department, J&K, successfully conducted an e-learning course within the premises of the district jail in Bhaderwah. This program is a significant step towards the reformation and reintegration of offenders into society.

The e-learning course brought the power of education directly to the inmates, providing them with opportunities to pursue higher education and acquire valuable skills while serving their sentences. The initiative demonstrates the university’s commitment to creating educational opportunities for all, regardless of an individual’s circumstances.

Dr. Jatinder Manhas, Head of the Department of Computer Science & IT, expressed enthusiasm for the initiative, emphasizing the transformative power of education and the importance of extending educational outreach to incarcerated populations.

Addressing Educational Needs and Breaking the Cycle of Crime

This program not only addresses the educational needs of the inmates but also contributes to their social and emotional development. Inmates who participate in educational programs while incarcerated are statistically proven to be less likely to reoffend, emphasizing the importance of such initiatives in breaking the cycle of crime.

The faculty members actively participated in the initiative, fostering a learning environment that transcends traditional boundaries. The Department of Computer Science & IT, Bhaderwah Campus, takes pride in being part of this rehabilitation culture, fostering empathy and hope.

Paving the Way for a Brighter Future

The success of this e-learning course at District Jail Bhaderwah reflects the University of Jammu’s commitment to social responsibility and community engagement. By extending education to incarcerated individuals, the university is contributing to a brighter, more educated future for all.

The course, conducted from May 15th to August 15th, 2023, included exams on August 29th, and the successful inmates were recently awarded course completion certificates by Dr. Jatinder Manhas, Head of the Department of Computer Science & IT, Bhaderwah Campus, University of Jammu, in the presence of Superintendent Jail Mushtaq Ahmed Malla and Bablu Sharma, Programmer, Department of Computer Science & IT.
