Prisoner Cleverson Barbosa, 27, (L) caresses his wife's face as their children sit watching, during a half-day visit as part of the ACUDA programme, at a complex of ten prisons in Porto Velho, Rondonia State, Brazil, August 28, 2015. Down a dirt road in the Amazonian state of Rondonia, prisoners convicted of murder, theft and other crimes get a rare release from the day-to-day hardships of a penal system known for violence and overcrowding. ACUDA (Association for the Cultural Development of Prisoners), a local charity in the capital city of Porto Velho, trains detainees in spiritual and physical healing practices such as Ayurvedic massage as well as in vocational skills including car mechanics and gardening. The therapies have one goal, says Luiz Carlos Marques, the charity's founder - educating inmates about the possibilities of life beyond crime.
