Grégoire Nsingiyumva is a technician. His job is to install and maintain biogas systems in prisons across Rwanda. Grégoire is also a prisoner.
Since 1990, the ICRC has been working with Rwanda Correctional Services (RCS) to improve the welfare of detainees. Various innovative projects such as a biogas system, liquid and bar soap production, chlorine production, and saucepans production are jointly implemented to create better cooking and hygiene conditions while helping RCS become self-sufficient.
Detainees like Grégoire play a key role in these projects. The training and experience they receive in the prisons help them to integrate back into society when they are released.
