Nisha Darlami (top left), 19, stays for a month after the birth of her baby girl, Bushpa, at her mother's (top right) house 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. 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
