CARE’s Tipping Point initiative, with the generous support from The Kendeda Fund, focuses on addressing the root causes of child, early and forced marriage (CEFM), promoting the rights of adolescent girls through community level programming and evidence generation in Nepal and Bangladesh, and multi-level advocacy and cross-learning efforts across the globe.

For Phase 2 (2017-2020), the Tipping Point initiative has utilized learnings from Phase 1 to develop and test a holistic and replicable implementation package. Tipping Point’s approach focuses on synchronized engagement with different participant groups (e.g. girls, boys, parents, community leaders), around key programmatic topics, and creates public facing spaces for all community members to be part of the dialogue. Tipping Point’s synchronized approach is rooted in challenging social expectations and repressive norms and promoting girls-driven movement building and activism, components designed to help adolescent girls find and collectively step into spaces to engage with and tackle inequality.
