This document is a guide to the VOICES behavior change approach in Nepal, which uses the testimonials of mothers and fathers to influence changes among other parents in the community, so they are more supportive of the gender norms changes very young adolescents (VYAs) are making.  VOICES seeks to change gender-related behaviors of parents who have VYAs aged 10 to 14 years old. Ideally, the parents of very young adolescents who are participating in CHOICES will be targeted to participate in VOICES, although any parent of early adolescents can benefit from viewing the VOICES testimonials and participating in the group dialogues.
