100 Women: Saving Nepal’s children from growing up in prison

In Nepal, young children are often kept with their mothers in prison. But after the age of five, thousands of them find a new life and education beyond bars in one of Indira Ranamagar's homes.

Produced and edited by Olivia Lang; filmed by Kevin McGregor.

What is 100 Women?

BBC 100 Women names 100 influential and inspirational women around the world every year. In 2017, we're challenging them to tackle four of the biggest problems facing women today - the glass ceiling, female illiteracy, harassment in public spaces and sexism in sport.

With your help, they'll be coming up with real-life solutions and we want you to get involved with your ideas. Find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and use #100Women
