‘Connecting The Dots’ was launched on International Human Rights Day 2013 and its purpose is to articulate how the group will bring community engagement to the next level in a Web 2.0 world.
This is B-Change's first ever five-year strategy and it a tool designed to align all of the Group's work and partnerships until 2018.
The focus of the strategy is to support the well-being of young LGBT people and their allies in developing and emerging countries, by promoting health, human rights and civic participation.
All units of the B-Change Group collaborate to achieve the goals laid out in ‘Connecting The Dots’. We also form partnerships with other like-minded organisations to scale up the strategy to reach diverse communities around the world.
Support for the publication of the ‘Connecting The Dots’ strategy was provided by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), under the ISEAN-HIVOS Multi-Country Global Fund Programme (ME1–011-G01-H) and the UNDP/USAID ‘Being LGBT in Asia’ (Phase I) initiative.

In 2016, the B-Change Group conducted an evaluation of its progress with the 'Connecting The Dots' strategy. This evaluation was conducted by board and team members, guided by academic research and technical advice from Levi Strauss Foundation and the United Nations Development Programme. A progress report was produced and shared with donors, supporters and other stakeholders.

The mid-term evaluation lead to a refinement of B-Change organisational structure and activities that would enhance progress towards the Group's 2018 goal.
