Tipping Point Community Participatory Analysis Toolkit - CARE

Tipping Point Community Participatory Analysis Toolkit

The Tipping Point Community Participatory Analysis (CPA) Study was designed to deepen understanding of the contextual factors and root causes driving the prevalence of child marriage in a particular region of Bangladesh which has high rates of the practice. The findings were also intended to inform innovative and context-specific program design. With regard to monitoring and evaluation, the CPA study’s purpose was to provide clarity on outcomes and measures to focus on the project’s overall monitoring, evaluation, and learning activities, and to provide baseline data for some indicators of change for use in the future.

More about the toolkit

Of particular note, these include girls’ visions for themselves, the visions of parents for their daughters, and the prevailing knowledge and perceptions of the risks and benefits of early marriage versus waiting. A less conventional objective of the study was to promote learning and build capacity at the local level. With the Tipping Point Phase 1 implementation, CARE structured a project that incorporates a focus on learning by proactively creating space for review and reflection at every level. Hence, the CPA study was designed in a manner that would build the capacity of the project field staff as knowledge workers, build their skills to engage with participatory data collection tools, analyses and sense-making, and use findings from their research to inform the program design. The project endeavored to instill in field facilitators and social mobilizers, and partner organizations and staff, the sense that they all contribute in important ways to research and learning by reflecting, in real time, on their work with community members and by being a core part of the study.
