Rana Bahadur Magar (right), 24, attends to a customer in his pharmacy which he bought over 2 years ago in Gangate Village, Sathakhani Bidishi, Surkhet district, Western Nepal, on 30th June 2012. Monthly, Rana Bahadur Magar sells over 300 condoms and 1700 birth control pills and does about 10 injections of 3-month-long contraceptives which he is trained to do. The nearest district hospital is an hour's drive away. In Surkhet, StC partners with Safer Society, a local NGO which advocates for child rights and against child marriage.
