Targeting Gendered Information Obstacles to Inclusive and Sustainable Economic Growth
While the explosion of information communications technologies across East Africa presents new opportunities to stimulate economic growth and development, women entrepreneurs face distinctly gendered barriers. Recognising and addressing these challenges is a central prerequisite for designing meaningful and sustainable impact.
By adopting approaches that embed potential beneficiaries (such as local cross-border traders) into the design process, we are able to accurately identify user experience sooner in the product development process and design more effective solutions for better beneficiary experiences.
We work with civil society organisations and development researchers to use data collected through our platform for evidence-based advocacy at community, regional and national levels.
Empowering Africa's Cross-Border
Traders with the Right Information
Traders can use our number to find out what documentation, taxes and tariffs are applicable to their products, and receive regular updates on changes to border procedures.
Sauti means voice in Swahili and our mission is to empower “low technology” environments across Africa by reducing barriers to information and by facilitating evidence-based development research.
