The Stepping Stones gender-transformative social norms change programme

The Stepping Stones gender-transformative social norms change programme works with participants of communities across the genders and generations, to build a shared vision to overcome the complex challenges they face with regard to their sexual and reproductive health and well-being.

Where the programmes have been well adapted, in line with the structure and principles of the original programmes, participants have described multiple positive outcomes, included reduced violence against women and girls, greater care, respect and support for people living with HIV, and happier, healthier and safer children.
