The principle methodology of this project is that for sustainable changes in attitude and behavior to be achieved ,change must come from within ,and be multi layered – involving individuals ,communities, leaders and governments. Based on this principle, this action focuses specifically on enabling youth from diverse religious and ethnic groups (Key demographic groups in all 3 countries ) to analyze existing religious intolerance and discriminations within their societies and take effective actions locally and nationally for positive change. It will foster dialogue between youth and traditional and religious leaders and local frameworks of inclusion and gender equality and thus effectively advocate for positive change, The action will innovatively focus on building capacity and interest of young media persons (focus on women) to combat discrimination of religious minorities and non-believers, Youth networks will be linked to private sector mobile service providers and CSR initiatives through the use of mobile technology. Local ownership will be strengthened at the community level through the mobilization of youth activists and the formation of community Based Human Rights Forums. At the local ,national and regional level ownership of the action by minorities and women will be emphasized and their voices strengthened through use of social media .All the stakeholders will be linked to international campaigns like Musawah (the campaigns for equality and justice in muslim families ) and the UNESCO initiated Global Alliance for Media and Gender(Beginning platform for Action and MDG3) more

The proposed five-year program (2015-2020) will reduce violence against women and girls, including: the prevalence of early and forced marriage, through coordinated prevention and response initiatives that will directly reach 245,000 women and girls in Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan and Philippines. Violence against women in many countries throughout Asia is rising rapidly and taking a huge toll on families, economies and productivity. The widespread prevalence of violence against women and girls is particularly acute when it comes to: domestic violence and marital rape; child, early and forced marriages; and trafficking in women and girls. Despite considerable progress in establishing policies and programs, implementation of these has been slow. The slow pace of change is largely the result of deeply entrenched cultural values, attitudes and practices that are rooted in gender stereotypes and discrimination that perpetuate exploitation and violence against women and girls. The proposed program builds on compelling global evidence on combating violence against women and girls: the most effective strategies engage a broad range of social actors, as well as institutional and political leaders, in efforts to reduce the social acceptance of gender-based violence and related practices. Program outcomes will be threefold: 1) the active engagement of community leaders (including religious, private sector, and political leaders) and youth (both girls and boys) in advancing women’s rights, women’s leadership and the elimination of violence against women and girls by building the capacity of these actors to change their attitudes, norms and behaviours, and to strengthen standards, legislation, and regulations. The program will also: 2) ensure that women and girls who have been affected by violence and child, early and forced marriage are able to ensure their long-term well-being by accessing support services, such as safe spaces (shelters), and psycho-social support, as well as economic opportunities that allow them to thrive free of violence. Finally, Oxfam will leverage its global, national and regional capacity to: 3) support strategic linkages, national and regional alliances and innovative knowledge and accountability systems that advance the rights of women and girls. more
