Remote education in Dutch for Dutch detainees

with No Comments

The Education behind Foreign Bars Foundation (Educatie achter buitenlandse tralies) (Eabt) is a volunteer organisation that was founded in 2004. Since that year, the Foundation has successfully organised remote education in Dutch for Dutch detainees in prisons abroad and has coordinated this education from the Netherlands.

More than half of foreign detainees born in the Netherlands have not taken primary education adequately and do not meet its end level, for various reasons. Many have not taken vocational training or have not completed it with a diploma. The result: social assistance and high debt. Additionally, they face a lack of social skills, whereas they also have to cope with behavioural problems and the inability to live together with other people in a balanced way.
