Our Theory of Change captures our understanding of change and how we seek to spark, catalyse, contribute to and sustain change. It is based on the understanding that change is not linear and instead complex, that it cannot always be neatly categorised into separate boxes but that it is very often layered and interconnected.
It draws on movement building theory which centres collective action as the most critical avenue to initiate change. It is rooted in the understanding that power is at the heart of the injustices, inequalities, discrimination, exclusion and violence which we seek to eliminate in order for girls to live in safety, dignity and freedom. The change we seek, is therefore to change existing power dynamics in order to transform the world with and for girls.
