Lessons from Partnering with Faith-Based Organizations in Very Young Adolescent Programming

This brief explores the potential of faith-based organizations to meaningfully address harmful gender and sexual and reproductive health (SRH) attitudes, behaviors, and norms among very young adolescents (VYAs), their families, and communities in Bangladesh. Most gender and SRH interventions tend to focus on older adolescents (15-19 years) and adults, neglecting VYA populations. Through this activity, MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership sought to strengthen local partner capacity to apply effective programming addressing gender and SRH challenges facing VYAs.
