India: recreational activities held for kids of women prisoners

Recreational activities will be organised for the children of women inmates in jail in connection with project “Khushi” a campaign of the Chhattisgarh State Legal Services Authority (SLSA) to provide a different environment to children suffering for a crime they have not committed while staying with their convicted and under-trial mothers in the jail.

A large number of convicted women and under-trials are detained in the jail. Along with women prisoners, their small children also live in the jail and some children are kept in the place operated under the Muktakash campaign. Being constantly in prison and living in a state of unhappiness leads to depression.
