Manisha Sunar, 18, carries her 2 year old son, as she poses for a portrait at the information center near her home in Lekhapharsa vilage, Surkhet district, Western Nepal, on 30th June 2012. Manisha was married off when she was 14 but secretly used contraceptives with the help of her husband's sister. When he found out, he forced her to stop and she was soon pregnant with no money to terminate it. She's now 8 months pregnant again even though her husband neglects and abuses her and her son. In Surkhet, StC partners with Safer Society, a local NGO which advocates for child rights and against child marriage. Photo by Suzanne Lee for Save The Children UK
