CARE’s Tipping Point project addresses child marriage through a dynamic process of innovationinsight, and influence. With the generous support of the Kendeda Fund, the project focuses on identifying the root causes of child early and forced marriage (CEFM) and facilitates innovative strategies to create alternative paths for adolescent girls in Nepal and Bangladesh. Grounded by this work, the project also seeks to influence the way policymakers, donors, researchers, and civil society approach the issue of CEFM, specifically to steer the global discourse beyond short-term solutions.

CARE expects this learning and innovation initiative to contribute to global understanding of the complex issues driving CEFM and strategies that can contribute to a “tipping point” of sustainable change to prevent CEFM  and create viable alternative paths for adolescent girls.
