Testimonials

    "...The feed back received from the prisoners after these informing sessions, the interest for messages linked to HIV transmission, to drugs, to other sexually transmitted infections, gave us the hope that both inside and outside penitenciaries, after their release, the prisoners will avoid behavior at risk and will be aware about their risk of exposure in different daily life context."

    - Manuelei Iftimoaei, national project coordinator for Initiative 38 project, Close to You Foundation, Iasi

    "...despite the fact that it isn't an environment to make you want to stay, the time spent there (in the penitenciaries) makes you understand that there is something good in each person...The fact that they've been trusted makes them belive in their future and the implication that we're waiting from them will be more important..".

    - Simona Butu, trainer for health at Mures branch of Close to You Foundation, lector in "Initiative 38" Program for penitenciaries
