Africa: Juveniles in Prisons: prisons131

Young women dance around in the girls' room of the remand home for juveniles who are awaiting trial for crimes in Kampala, Uganda, November 17, 2006.  Uganda has one remand home, and one rehabilitation home, a home for juveniles who have been convicted of crimes, in Kampala.   Across Africa, dozens of suspected juveniles are mixed with adult prisoners in prisons, but because of a lack of birth certificates, and a gross lack of resources for separate facilities, it is difficult for officials to provide separate facilities for children from adults.
