    Training manual for Women’s Integrated Sexual Health (WISH) programme

    The #WISH2ACTION project focuses on increasing access to contraception among the most marginalized women, whose needs for family planning are largely unmet. The consortium running the project is led by the International Planned Parenthood Federation.

    We conducted client exit interviews in 17 countries as part of the Women's Integrated Sexual Health (WISH) programme. Together with IPPF, we developed the training manual to train enumerators on how to conduct clients exit interviews. The quality of this data is central to the programme making decisions that will improve people’s lives.

    How social media is powering small business in Africa

    The Facebook Company contracted Genesis to produce an independent report exploring the impact of the digital economy and social media on small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in eight African countries (South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Mauritius, Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire and the DRC).

    The study finds evidence that social media platforms are powerful catalysts in the formation and growth of new SMBs, and shows that SMBs that use digital tools such as the Facebook apps (Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger), are the vehicles for realising Africa’s three latent opportunities:

    1. Leveraging Africa’s competitive advantage of an extremely young population;

    2. Bringing more women into formal economic activity; and

    3. Diversifying and expanding intra-African trade.

      FINANCIAL LITERACY TRAINING IS KEY FOR FINANCIAL RESILIENCE IN A CRISIS

      Genesis, the MEL partner of the ASISA Foundation, assessed the extent to which financial education, in particular the financial education provided by their WageWise programme, builds resilience during economic downturns. The survey found that individuals who had received some form of financial education prior to the pandemic, fared much better compared to their counterparts. In particular, they had existing savings, less debt, and they were able to continue to provide for their families, even with reduced incomes due to the pandemic.
