THE SITUATION

There are children under 6 years of age who were born and are living with their mothers in seclusion.

The penitentiary law does not include any article regarding the Rights of Children living in prison.

Education within prisons is not mandatory.

Their feeding is not mandatory, so they depend on donations and internal charities.

As they are not allowed to be checked by the guards, they become internal mules for drug trafficking.

They have to be present at their mother's conjugal visits.

THE CHALLENGE

Generate a political and social change. Guarantee the human rights of children who live in prisons with their mothers.

THE IDEA

Inspired by the yearbooks that the schools publish their students, we create the "Yearbook of Invisible Children 2015" of the Santa Martha Women's Prison in Mexico City, an action to show the generations of children who grow up and live in prison.

Visit the children and meet them through their stories, photos, and drawings. By completing the entry pass with your data, you sign a petition to reduce the period of stay, from 6 to 3 years.
