Prisoners in Mahottari district have launched a campaign to reform their prison in Jaleswor. The prison now has twice the number of inmates it was designed for, there is acute lack of drinking water, sanitation and even beds. Since the jail administration failed to act, the prisoners decide to do something on their own. A health program of an NGO run by human rights activist, Ram Adhar Kapar, was their source of inspiration. Kapar is himself in jail now and initiated the program.
