Nisha Darlami's mother carries her 1 month old baby girl, Bushpa, up the stairs to her bedroom in Kalyan Village, Surkhet district, Western Nepal, on 30th June 2012. Nisha eloped with her step nephew when she was 13 but the couple used contraceptives for the next 6 years to delay pregnancy until she turned 18. Now 19, she has a one month old baby girl named Bushpa (flower). In Surkhet, StC partners with Safer Society, a local NGO which advocates for child rights and against child marriage.
