Millions of girls and boys around the world have lost one or both their parents due to imprisonment. They are innocent victims of crime. One million of them have no safe place to live and lack food, care, education, and psycho-social support. These forgotten children must fend for themselves on their struggles. Tens and thousands of others grow up inside the prison in horrid conditions with their parents because they have nowhere else to live. They’re exploited, subject to physical and emotional abuse, stigmatized, and are unable to thrive. Children of prisoners are also far more likely to end up in prison as adults than those whose parents never served time.
Education should do more influence on a social, moral and intellectual discovery by stimulating critical attitudes of thought in the young. It should help to open the mind and the heart of people to achieve happiness, welfare and peaceful life. All the children should be given the best chance to avail educational facilities.
