The library developed within the project was enriched with new books, tales and development games for children who will be visiting their imprisoned mothers.

In the course of the trainings provided by the psychologist from the “Offenders' Rehabilitation Center” and other specialists including a pediatrician and a sexual health specialist, the parents learned specifics of the child development, age crisis of children, and enhanced their awareness on the importance of maintaining parent-child relationships. To provide self-sustainability of the Parents Club initiative developed within the project, the parents will meet on monthly basis to discuss issues they are concerned with. Penitentiary institution, in its turn, will support this initiative through provision of continuous professional support and creating new opportunities for further educational and rehabilitation projects for them.
