Sarawati Regmi (center, white), 11, attends a club meeting at the Kishuri Sachetana Child Club in their activity center in Thahuri Tole, Chhinchu, Surkhet district, Western Nepal, on 1st July 2012. Sarawati's ambition is to run an NGO. 16-year-old Bhawani Regmi (in grey/pink) who is the president of the district level child forum, 11-year-old  Sarawati Regmi (in white), and 10-year-old Ganga Regmi (in pink) are daughters of pandit (Hindu priest) Dharma Raj Regmi who is one of the 3 priests who have agreed to stop solemnizing child marriages. These Child Clubs, supported by the government, Save the Children and their local partner NGO Safer Society, advocate for child rights and against child marriages and use peer support and education to end child marriages and raise awareness.
