This manual has been designed to conduct parents’ meetings, a facilitated series of meetings with a group of parents aimed to improve knowledge, skills, attitude, and behaviours in relation to their children’s Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, with a particular focus on child marriage. The training was developed as a guideline for community workers facilitating parents’ meetings in the Hello, I Am programme. The Hello, I Am programme (2017-2020) aimed to end child marriage, adolescent pregnancy, and school drop-out in Bangladesh. Using a multi-pronged approach that included positive role modelling, intergenerational dialogue, and edutainment, the programme empowered young men and women to take action against child marriage and encouraged parents and community leaders to become more supportive of girls’ aspirations.
