We commit ourselves in promoting awareness of prison realities and working towards rehabilitation that goes beyond punishment...



 

 

We commit ourselves in promoting awareness of prison realities through exposure in various prison camps and interaction with the inmates and their families. Through these visits, guests are able to clarify various misconceptions about incarcerated individuals. Using Authentic Christian Humanism as framework, and guided by the Catholic Social Teachings, we are able to guide and accompany visitors to rediscover how God's grace abounds and breaks any kind of imprisonment.

We also help promote various prison reforms by seeking assistance for children in conflict with the law; lobbying for penal and judicial reforms; conducting researches and linkages with various networks; and presenting viable and more Christian alternatives to purely punitive attitudes toward prisoners.

PJPS has been very active in campaigning for the abolition of death penalty and the passage of the Juvenile Justice Welfare Act which protects the rights of children in conflict with the law (CICL). Todate, we continue to collaborate with the Bureau of Corrections and other government offices in ensuring a just and humane corrections program.  We have also established a network of various civic organizations and individuals who work as volunteers in promoting a rehabilitation that goes beyond punishment.

PJPS Foundation, Inc.

  • The Philippine Jesuit Prison Service Foundation, Inc. (PJPS) is a non-stock, non-profit organization that advocates for a more humane approach to the rehabilitation of incarcerated individuals and their families.  It is one of the official socio-pastoral apostolate of the Society of Jesus in the Philippines.  Since its onset in 1994, PJPS has been responding to the needs of prisoners through its various programs and services.
  • Our flagship project is a scholarship program for children of inmates. Through the years, PJPS has helped these children cope with the harsh reality of having an incarcerated father through education. We are able to do this through the support of friends and benefactors who generously responded to the call of the Lord: "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."
