Volunteers with the Aram Foundation on Wednesday sensitised the inmates of the Coimbatore Central Prison on various social issues through street plays.

In the Social and Moral Awareness Programme, jointly organised by the District Legal Services Authority (DLSA) Coimbatore, and Aram Foundation, Coimbatore, volunteers staged plays at the prison auditorium that emphasised showing respect and dignity for women.

According to organisers, the plays also portrayed the consequences of anger, consumption of liquor and the importance of education. Asking inmates to restrain from causing hurt to others, the plays also dealt with helping the needy, working hard and not being envious about the achievements of others.

Other topics, like usage of mobile phones for good purposes, abolition of child labour and child abuse, proper usage of toilets and importance of Clean India campaign, were also discussed in the plays.

Senior civil judge and secretary of DLSA, Coimbatore, V John Mino, presided and senior officials from the Coimbatore Central Prison participated in the event, which is the fifth such programme for the inmates at the jail.
