Making innovation work for girls and women in Tanzania

Making innovation work for girls and women in Tanzania

Women and girls typically experience the most extreme poverty because they face greater burdens of unpaid work, limited assets and productive resources compared to men, less access to education, and cultural factors that limit life-chances including early marriage.3 In addition, while there is a growing body of evidence showing that innovation has the power to transform women’s lives, there is minimal information globally and from Tanzania on how innovations may diferentially impact the lives of girls and women, how gender dynamics afect innovation, and what may be successful approaches to addressing these challenges. This White Paper presents HDIF’s initial learning about the relationship between innovation and gender including critical learning from five HDIF-supported innovations and other partners.
