A girl comes to a screeching halt on a motorbike. A trio of girls stand proudly with their schoolbooks. Two girls - friends and teammates - offer up a soccer ball for a game. These are scenes of everyday life as presented by the people living it in rural Nepal and Bangladesh. As part of CARE's Tipping Point project, a program that addresses the root causes of child marriage, participants were outfitted with cameras to document their lives and show how Tipping Point is helping them transform their communities. The resulting photos reveal that seemingly subtle shifts in attitudes and habits can have lasting impact.

In many villages of Nepal and Bangladesh, adolescent girls are prohibited from outdoor sports. Tipping Point introduced different ideas, so girls can move freely and confidently compete.
