The youth prison Antanimora is part of the „Maison centrale Antananarivo“, the largest prison in Tana and surroundings. The approximately 2600 inmates exceed the capacity of 800 over three times. The prison consists of a building complex with three different sections, each organized as a collection cell; the women‘s and children‘s prison, the adult wing and the unit for underage male adolescents. 80% of young people are in so-called protective custody and wait usually for several years or in vain for a lawsuit. Approximately 70% of the youth are orphans and grew up on the streets of Antananarivo.
