In partnership with Zebstrong, we organized prison Olympic games which is a duplicate of the Olympic games taking place in Japan. The inmates were engaged in a variety of games including football, volleyball, tug of war, javelin, and athletics. During the event, we shared with the inmates the dangers of drug abuse and harmful use of alcohol and mental health awareness. Inmates and police officers need mental support as they go through tough situations in the prison environment. Stigma and discrimination are high among inmates. As per the deputy officer in charge of the prison, sporting activities reduce inmates’ misbehavior in prison as they would not want to be barred from participating in the activities.
