Pramila Tharu, 15, carries her 2 year old toddler Prapti as she stands at the door of her home in Bhaishahi village, Bardia, Western Nepal, on 29th June 2012. Pramila eloped and married at 12 and gave birth to Prapti at age 13. She delivered prematurely on the way to the hospital in an ox cart and her baby weighed only 1.5kg at birth. In Bardia, StC works with the district health office to build the capacity of female community health workers who are on the frontline of health service provision like ante-natal and post-natal care, especially in rural areas.
