Peacemakers -Facilitating Psycho-social Rehabilitation of Inmates and Children

Prisoners often come from troubled backgrounds and have to bear the brunt of unresolved conflicts with their families and peers. Once in prison, these people are given-up by society and excluded from their own community - a harsh reality which affects women and children the most. Once guilty, the life after prison gets more difficult not only for the convicts but also for their families and children.

Peacemakers believe in the restoration, rehabilitation, reconstruction, and reconciliation of prisoners as they understand their need for opportunities and resources to rebuild their lives, families, and communities.

Started as a Tata Trust supported fellowship of TISS, Peacemakers Pehel project is committed to serving women inmates and their families who lack financial, legal, and psychological support.
