Tackling gender inequality is one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. It has now been recognised world-over for the critical role it plays towards ending poverty. To achieve this, accurate data and insights are required to understand the challenges facing girls.
To create meaningful change for girls we need to close the global gender data gap

Uncovering powerful new insights about those living in hard to reach communities
Insights collected by TEGAs help organisations better understand the reality of girls’ lives, meaning better designed, more targeted development programmes that have real impact.
Co-created with girls, TEGA integrates technology that can operate in places with poor network connection. It has fast translation capabilities, data encryption and rapid emergency response to ensure the safety and data protection of all participants.
Through the app, TEGAs conduct a range of different research methods to support programmes:
TEGAs can confidently conduct interviews with girls, boys, adults and community leaders, revealing candid information to help understand issues or inform programme and product design.
Concept & creative testing
TEGAs can instantly capture reactions and feedback insights into the design process. This allows for programmes to be adapted in real-time, rather than once they are finished.
Monitoring & evaluation
TEGAs collects qualitative and quantitative data, putting them in a unique position to regularly provide insights to improve the quality of programmes.
