This Best Practices book for Children Who Serve Prison (AMPP) shows good practices that have been carried out in 5 Care Program intervention areas (PKBI Bengkulu, PKBI DKI Jakarta, PKBI South Sumatra, PKBI West Java, and LPA East Java. ).
This book reminds that children have the right to get all their rights wherever they are without exception. So this makes it clear that the program which is intended for children who are serving prison sentences (AMPP) only ends in an effort to ensure that their rights are fulfilled by the State. Even though the use of the word child combined with the word criminal still feels a little annoying for observers of children’s rights.
As a program has been implemented for a certain period of time, it must have created various impacts that directly or indirectly affect both the beneficiaries, program implementers and the program itself. Moreover, when in implementation it tries to start applying the Theory of Change consistently. This proves that everything must start with a commitment to change if it is to produce meaningful work.
In the end, when in the intervention areas they made efforts to enable families and communities to meet children’s needs, increase children’s participation and advocacy, it has shown how practices occur throughout the program with the emergence of family forums and stakeholder forums. So that this program can be said to have been able to provide additional knowledge to stakeholders, and create awareness in children and families (beneficiaries) that there are rights that must be fulfilled even though they are in a situation of serving a crime.
