Program impact is being evaluated utilizing a three-arm cluster randomized controlled trial. The evaluation will assess outcomes of social norms linked to CEFM, girls’ decision-making power over major life decisions (marriage, mobility, education, health - including ASRHR), girls’ fulfillment of sexual and reproductive health and rights, and their collective activism for their rights. In Nepal, the evaluation will include a boys’ survey, including modules on boys’ rights and hegemonic masculinity. This evaluation has been designed to contribute to the research base on CEFM and thus the broader discourse on adolescent girls’ rights by generating evidence on the effectiveness of holistic gender transformative programming and understanding the potential value-add of social norms focused programming.
