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 uses synchronized engagement with different participant groups (e.g., girls, boys, parents, community leaders), around key programmatic topics, and creates public spaces for all community members to be part of the dialogue. Tipping Point’s approach is rooted in challenging social expectations and repressive norms and promoting girl-driven movement building and activism. These components are designed to help adolescent girls find and collectively step into spaces to reflect on and tackle inequality.
The goal of this curriculumS is to promote gender equality and prevent child marriage and GBV. The activities are meant to help youth reflect on expectations and roles they play in regard to gender, to help them challenge inequitable expectations, to practice new, more equitable ways of behaving, to learn about key topics on SRHR and income generation.
Facilitator’s Manual for Girls Collectives
This Facilitator’s Manual for Girls’ Collectives has been designed for adolescent girls aged 12 to under-16 in Bangladesh at the time of baseline. The core intervention package spans 18 months, consisting of 45 sessions in total, e.g., no more than one session a week and not overlapping with national holidays, school exams, and other context-related events. In addition to the sessions in this manual, the girls’ intervention package includes Village Savings and Loan Association (VSLA) sessions and a girls’ activist training.
