The evaluation of gender dimensions is an important part of project design because achieving gender equality contributes to development effectiveness and social change.

Our trainings are designed based on the needs of the participants and participants' continual feedback allows us to ensure that their needs are met.

Used within an ICT context, gender analysis asserts that power relations in class, race, ethnicity, age, and geographic location interact with gender producing complex and hidden inequalities that affect social change.

“What GEM has done is actually formalise the isssues for me so I can actually explicitly see them. Before I used to see them but I wasn’t actually processing them. Because of GEM I can actually see why things are the way they are and can make some sense of it.”
