Type Notes, a company dedicated to the modern design of notebooks, has decided to develop some of its products in the workshops that operate in the various prison complexes in the province of Mendoza. The elaboration of these products arises taking advantage of the leftovers of fabric from backpacks that were made in the textile workshop that operates in Unit 3 of El Borbollón, another  prison complex  in our province. There, more than 170 fabric bags have already been produced that will serve as packaging for the agendas of the company Type Notes. 

Thus, the packaging of some of the company's products are made by people who are housed in contexts of confinement.  Currently, about 2300 persons deprived of their liberty are actively involved in one of the four labour axes of the penitentiary system, whether maestranza, which is accustoming to the system by cleaning common spaces and collaborating with staff in its tasks. daily maintenance, by learning masonry, electricity, painting, with teachers and guides from the prison service.  Participants in own production workshops or private firms are the ones with the largest number of inmates. 

 Trades and education 

Prisoners in the prison system of Mendoza have at their disposal the holding of workshops to  learn   crafts  such as carpentry or masonry, which then will serve to carry out this type of work or to obtain a workspace when serving his sentence.

But, in addition, prisoners can also choose to study either by completing  primary or secondary school or  , for those who already have that degree, they can also choose a  university career  , with the work of teachers at the National University of Cuyo.
