UNICEF developed the Communities Care: Transforming Lives and Preventing Violence Programme (CC Programme) based on evidence and experiences that show that changing collective beliefs and unspoken rules in communities can lead to change in collective practices and behaviours. This innovative and exciting programme aims to prevent sexual violence against women and girls in communities affected by conflict by working with these communities to transform social norms – reshaping norms that promote sexual violence into norms that promote dignity, equality and non-violence.
