This Tuesday, December 20, the doors of a new world opened for the inmates of the El Pedregal prison, with the inauguration of a program that will allow them to access the courses on technology 4.0 and the Software Valley, offered by Sapiencia, which will also reach the men’s pavilion.

In 34 fields, people deprived of their liberty will be able to train and improve their knowledge in digital marketing, programming and web development.

“We will have the possibility of having here in the Pedregal complex only a population that exceeds 400 people, but we still lack the statistics of Bellavista and Itagüí in which we will extend the process,” said Carlos Alberto Chaparro, director of Sapienza.

This program will also be brought to the young people of the special centers La POLA and La Floresta in January.

“If we want Medellín to be a valley of software, we must fight so that the entire population can absolutely access these skills without discrimination,” he explained. Diana Osorio, Social Manager of Medellín.

The grand opening of these programs was accompanied by a fashion show, where the inmates modeled the garments they made themselves.
