Drosos Foundation has a strong and keen interest in serving marginalized groups, one of which is that of prisoners in Egypt. Since 2006, Drosos Foundation has supported projects that worked extensively with both women and men prisoners during imprisonment and after their release from prison. Through tackling difficult subjects such as economic reintegration of prisoners, methods and approaches to tackling the rate of recidivism in Egyptian society, HIV prevention and treatment, provision of psychosocial and legal support services to prisoners, among other services, Drosos Foundation partnered with 3 organizations during the period 2016 to 2019 (3 years), not just as a donor organization, but also as a solid partner to share its expertise and mentor the organizations targeting the concerned marginalized group. This was conducted to ensure that the necessary services direly needed by the referred to target group are furnished, in addition to creating strong partnerships between different institutions and entities to foster healthy work relations among them, bridge gaps between them and at the same time, ensure sustainability of these activities.
