Training Support in India

The Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) in Mumbai, India, have been working with prisoners and families of prisoners since 1999. Currently they are developing programmes for the reform and rehabilitation of prisoners based in Amravati Central Prison and five districts in Western Vidharbha - see

A request has been received for Life Change UK staff to visit India in order to share our experiences and conduct some training with TISS staff. Whilst keen to assist, neither organisation has sufficient funding to pay for the visit and the delivery of training. Each is now attempting to raise the money through leading philanthropic Indian business leaders, banks and other organisations.

If you can help, or know of others who might be willing to do so, please contact us as soon as possible.

Thank you.
