Hear her voice – Girls’ stories during COVID

Category: Storytelling, Visual Storytelling

There’s this project that I want you to know about, partly because it’s innovative, partly because it’s all about empowering women and girls through data and visual storytelling, and partly because I was lucky enough to work on it.

TEGAs are Tech-Enabled Girl Ambassadors, a project set up by Girl Effect. They are helping to close the global gender data gap and bring the challenges faced by girls to global attention with a mobile-based, peer-to-peer research app.


They’ve been working to provide girl-led research insights and a better understanding of the needs of those living in hard-to-reach communities. 

It works by adolescent girls and young women aged 16-24 conducting interviews and unlocking authentic conversations that may be missed by typical research studies or NGO surveys.

Their latest project, ‘Hear her voice‘, sees 25 girls across three continents, from Bangladesh to Nigeria. The girls are trained by Girl Effect as researchers for their community, but because they can’t safely report due to COVID-19 they turned the camera on themselves to report on their own experiences.

I was honored to be a storytelling consultant for this venture, and it’s turned out to be a powerful series. Please check it out and share widely. It’s a crucial moment for girls around the world, and we need to make sure their voices are heard.
