Helping prisoners earn in a colourful and joyful way!

Income opportunity for women prisoners of the Yerawada Central Prison

The Rang Dulaar colours have been providing an opportunity to the women prisoners to earn an income for the past four years. By law, prisoners are allowed to work within the prison, and earn money which can either be saved for a time when they will be free again, or sent back to their families during their stay in prison. This allows women to support children who have been seperated from them or save some money for a future time.   Holi 2011 packg abida
