PAAR, a remarkable not-for-profit initiative, stands as a beacon of hope and transformation in the realm of penitentiary reform. Guided by the belief in the potential of open prisons, its extraordinary founder and promoter, Smita Chakraburtty, champions a revolutionary vision. In a world where traditional prisons suffocate sanity and perpetuate despair, PAAR advocates for a paradigm shift towards open prisons that cultivate constructive environments, embrace personal agency, and prioritise dignity and hygiene.

Within the confines of open prisons, incarcerated individuals experience a renaissance of life. These vibrant communities foster social connections, offer opportunities for paid work, and even welcome the presence of families. Instead of punishment and confinement, the focus is on reformation, reintegration, and the restoration of the human spirit.
