Forty-one female inmates at the Suva Women’s Corrections facility underwent a two – week training on life skills by an Australian organisation.
Volunteers Dave and Julie Huttons from the Westlife Church of Springfield Lakes, Brisbane, Australia, facilitated the training.
The couple took the inmates through various life changing lessons during the course of the training.
“Basically, we wanted to instill in them a positive attitude so that when they return to their communities and homes, they will be able to live normal lives and continue to do good,” explained Mr Huttons.
“We taught them lessons that will bring about life in them and help them realise that there is more to life. We also encouraged and empowered them to become beautiful women in heart and soul,” he said.
They’ve also been working with inmates of the Suva and Naboro facilities on repairing small engines and building bee boxes for honey production.
“There are a lot of gifted men and women in the corrections facilities who have yet to unleash their potentials and the courses that we have been teaching them will play an important role in helping them to realise their gifts,” Mr Huttons said.
