About the Project

On June 10, 2022, SJIB officially opened a foster home for teenagers from 13-18 years old. Stiching Justitiele Instellingen has outsourced the daily operations and management to the Dr. J. Foundation who is specialized in the residential care of minors. The foster home was fully furnished with the help of public and private sector contributions, however, the home lacks some important technology such as computers for educational support and camera surveillance system for safety and supervision. This project will focus on purchase and installation of an IT network with computers and a camera surveillance system. Staff and clients will be trained in the use of safe internet and other applications.
