Jeeta, 15, dresses for school outside of her family's chaupadi shed in Dhakari village, Achham, Nepal. The family cobbled together the shelter from sticks, tarps and tin after a local healer told the family that the sudden paralyzation of another daughter was because they had angered the gods by destroying their sturdier mud version and began to allow the family's females to sleep inside the house. The paralysis vanished not long after they began to sleep in a chaupadi shed once again.
