Since 2020, donations of ICT equipment have been made to non-governmental organisations (NGOs). The NGOs include those whose areas of work focus on the empowerment and rehabilitation into society of the former inmates and those specializing in the support to families of children with special needs. The ICT equipment (laptops, computers) donations form part of a policy of sustainable partnership between the Authority and civil society organisations.  This partnership is a tangible contribution towards the goal of leaving no one behind (LNOB), the overarching promise in the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
