Utilizing Participatory Data Collection Methods to Evaluate Programs for Very Young Adolescents: An Evaluation of Save the Childrenís Choices Curriculum in Siraha, Nepal
In order to improve gender equity among very young adolescents in Nepal, Save the Children developed the Choices curriculum, designed around eight participatory age and developmentally appropriate activities. The curriculum was piloted in Siraha district, in the Terai region of Nepal, which is known to have a high prevalence of practices that perpetuate gender inequity, such as early marriage, early motherhood and dowry. Further, formative research conducted during the development of Choices showed persistent gaps between boys and girls in the division of household chores, access to education, freedom to play and overall autonomy. Choices was designed with a gender reflective and transformative approach in mind, engaging boys and stimulating discussion and reflection between girls and boys.

Sections on each of the four dimensions include concrete activities that can be implemented as part of an overall strategy to achieve gender equality in education.
