Photo journal: Inside a Bolivian jail
Prison children

About 200 children live here with their fathers. The younger ones go to one of the two nurseries inside the jail, while the older ones go to schools outside. Outside they suffer discrimination - inside they are afraid of violence and sexual abuse. Their mothers are often in other jails or have abandoned them.

"It's tough for them here, but at least we can try to protect them and give them a sense of family. Outside they would be completely on their own," says the father of Manuel (right).
