Introduction
Dr. Beena is capacitating the Indian prison system to sustainably reduce recidivism and crime rates at a historical pace. Having institutionalized Unnati in all major prisons (over 11) of one state, Dr. Beena has brought down their recidivism rates from 80% to 1% and is now receiving formal invitations to institutionalize her intervention, from prison departments of other states.
