From model to movement: Standing by girls as they take the lead

Ten years ago, CARE’s Tipping Point initiative set out to reduce child marriage by working with girls, their families, and their communities on the social norms standing in the way of girls choosing their own futures. We found letting girls lead their own way didn’t just reduce their risk of marrying early — it led to positive changes across all areas of their lives.

Thank you to all who joined our event on International Day of the Girl to share this journey as we heard from the partners and mentors who have been part of this. It was inspiring to hear how girls are leading change their way and influencing the world around them.

If you were not able to join us live you can watch the recording here. Responses to questions raised during the event are available here.

We also invite you to be inspired by this short overview of some of the changes being led by girls in Bangladesh, Mali and Nepal.
