GEMsolutions: What we do

We provide monitoring, evaluation and planning services to organisations to ensure that our clients' initiatives improve the lives of girls and women in their communities. The evaluation of gender dimensions is an important part of project design because achieving gender equality contributes to development effectiveness and social change. We help our clients understand the gender issues at stake in their projects and contexts – so that they are able to develop plans that can respond to different needs of women as well as men.

d. Gender Evaluation Methodology Training
e. Gender sensitisation training
f. Digital Storytelling training for evaluation

Our Approach

All of our services are tailor built with our client. We recognize that each organization is unique and has their own way of working. We assess your needs and what you want to achieve with our involvement. We do not do evaluations for the sake of evaluations or training for the sake of training. Our services are designed to support you in improving your projects and programs and meeting your objectives.

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.
