Children growing up in Bolivian jails

Incarcerated adults are legally allowed to raise their children while imprisoned in Bolivia's jails.

    More than a thousand children in Bolivia spend their early years behind bars, living with their incarcerated parents.

    By law, children under the age of six cannot be separated from their parents, even if they are in jail.
