Impact Magazine showcases the power of TEGA

Girl Effect's Laura Scanlon writes a feature on the impact TEGA has had in Nigeria.

In a feature for Impact Magazine, TEGA Director Laura Scanlon discusses the challenges of conducting research in Nigeria, where girls live in some of the hardest to reach communities in the world. 

TEGA, a research innovation by Girl Effect is still in its early stages, but it marks a new way of approaching development challenges - using technology to empower girls living in poverty in order to create safer, faster, more scalable and authentic research.

Speaking to Impact Magazine she said: "For the first time, we can draw a full picture of a girl’s life in Nigeria and these insights have helped shape programmes by some of the world’s largest international NGOs. Before TEGA, using traditional methodologies, it was believed a young girl in Northern Nigeria to be obedient, shy and compliant. TEGA research has revealed she is confident, smart, and even a little bit rebellious and mischievous."
