Support Children of Imprisoned Mothers

Project Leader:

Mr. Yormahmad Kholov

Battered by a five-year civil war at the onset of its independence, The Republic of Tajikistan has struggled with poverty and instability in the two decades since it became its own state. Here, women and children are particularly vulnerable to abuse. The government operates 10 prisons, including one for women. Female inmates make up about 2% of the entire prison population. While exact conditions in these prisons is unknown, the U.S. State Department has gathered information indicating that prisoners face harsh and life-threatening conditions, including extreme overcrowding and unsanitary conditions. Some female inmates are incarcerated while pregnant and later give birth in prison. Others have had to bring their babies and toddlers with them at the time they are convicted because they have not other support system. To ease the burden on these mothers and provide hope for their young children, Yormahmad Kholov is raising money through MISSIO to support ongoing efforts to improve the on-site kindergarten.
