Iļģuciems Prison - Women & Children​

The International Women’s Club of Riga (IWCR) has long term relationship with the women who are serving time at the Ilguciems Women’s Prison in Riga, and their children, who up to the age of five are allowed to live with their mothers at the facility.

How we support

We have regularly supported the women & children there in different ways, for example by donating new shoes to the kids, offering English or Latvian language lessons, and by taking the kids out on excursions.
