Serigrafia de la Gringa (SDLG) provides a rehabilitation program that aims to break cycles of violence by engaging prisoners (both during and after their prison time) in legal and meaningful work, and as such, support their current and future wellbeing. SDLG offers a six-month vocational training (three months of theory and three months of practice) certified by the Ministry of Education in Guatemala. Prisoners are taught both hard(e.g. art of silk screen printing, graphic design, quality control) and soft skills (e.g. interview skills, CV writing, timeliness and discipline).

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
