Nongprue provided vocational training for inmates of Pattaya Remand Prison to prepare them for life after incarceration.
Sub-district clerk Teerawit Thongnok opened the May 16 workshop at the Nong Plalai prison with legal advisor Natcha Khaokrajang, owner of Natcha Spa and Beauty.
Instructors guided inmates in lessons on how to use herbs and plants to make products they could sell for income after their release.
Natcha showed how to make balm, liquid Borneol, creams, lotions, shampoo, soap and shower foam. All raw materials were local herbs which are easily found.
The goal of the training was to provide the convicts options on how to earn an honest living and not return to a life of crime.
