The life of prison does not have to be empty from hopes. To punish does not mean to enforce punishments. Auro Model Prison is all about aspiring for a reformed future with rehabilitative approach. Auro Model Prison and Central Jail Pondicherry have opened ‘Jail Shop’ which sell the products made/grown by inmates of the Pondicherry Central Jail Prison. This is an effort where the prisoners follow a path through their inspiring talent that is premised on Dignity and New Hope for a better future.
There are fruits and vegetables grown with the help of ‘Natural and Conscious Farming’. This Jail shops gives the farm produce and other Home Décor items at a highly subsidized rates to the families of the Inmates, Jail Staff and the Police Staff deputed in the Prison. The freedom to harness the creative abilities of the inmates in a disciplined manner as they go about serving their sentences within the confines of a jail is certainly profound and needs to be extolled.
