Bhai Manjinder Singh and Bhai Gurpreet Singh Pass 2nd Year BA While in Jail
Official Statement from SOPW(Sikh Organization for Prisoner Welfare) have been working hard to provide inmates essential resources to make such things happen:
Congratulations to Bhai Manjinder Singh and Bhai Gurpreet Singh for passing their second year BA.
SOPW recognise that one of the most difficult aspects of life behind bars for the prisoners we support is the long hours spent alone in solitary confinement, to help ease this unimaginable burden of mental torture we provide them with newspapers, panthic magazines etc but besides this and as an investment for their future we introduced a self development initiative three years ago wherby the prisoners are given the opportunity to enrol in distant academic learning, the course material is sent to them and during the long periods of isolation they can focus on academic study, this also serves as a positive means of mental stimulation for them.
Thanks to your ongoing support we are delighted to announce that two of our prisoners who opted to take up the offer of study have already made substantial progress, Bhai Manjinder Singh (pictured) and Bhai Gurpreet Singh have both passed in their second year of their chosen Bachelor of Honour (BA) courses.
