Tipping Point

Digging Up The Roots To Replant The Future

The Tipping Point initiative addresses child marriage through a dynamic process of innovation, insight (analysis and learning), and influence through advocacy.  With the generous support of The Kendeda Fund, and in partnership with Siddhartha Samudayik Samaj (SSS), the Dalit Social Development Center (DSDC), JASHIS, and the Association for Slum Dwellers (ASD), the project focuses on facilitating and learning from innovative strategies to influence change-makers and root causes of child marriage in Nepal and Bangladesh, two child marriage hotspots.
