Regional social humanitarian project  “Dad is Near. Mum, LET'S talk"

Justification of the project’s significance: How can you help families who find themselves in a difficult life situation, when one of the  parents made a mistake and ended up in prison? Support in word and deed.

The Social Project will help reduce the communication gap between convicted parents and their children. For parents in prison, such communication reduces the feeling of isolation and distance from their children. The library will help children to overcome the obstacles of space and time more easily, because they can virtually meet their parents in such a hospitable and safe place as the library.

This type of communication will contribute to better socialization and rehabilitation of the convicted family member after the end of the sentence, thereby reducing the likelihood of a second crime.
