The Prison Project began in September 2006. Second hand,top-of-the-line wheelchairs are collected and sent by Joni and Friends International Disability Center in the U.S.A. These wheelchairs are refurbished by the inmates of Bangalore Central Prison to a like-new condition, and distributed locally. Pediatric chairs, sports wheelchairs and various sizes of manual wheelchairs are fitted on each individual to assure the best mobility.These inmates, once deemed as outcasts in society now have found purpose. As they contribute in this way to society, they are rehabilitated.
