This tool is designed to explore gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) considerations in DSG projects. The tool has the following objectives:

  • Identify and understand the enablers and barriers that affect the ability of women and disadvantaged groups to meaningfully participate in, lead, and benefit from DSGs on an equal basis with men and those who hold power and privilege in a particular setting.
  • Examine risks and potential harmful consequences of gender-ignorant and not inclusive digitization efforts, such as marginalization of women and GBV, especially intimate partner violence and technology-facilitated violence.
  • Map context-specific tools, practices, and community-based resources that can support gender-responsive, inclusive, and safe digitization of saving groups.
  • Develop recommendations for fostering GESI within the parameters of the program through gender-responsive and inclusive DSG interventions.

The tool includes an annex with a sample analysis: Women Saving for Resilience: Digital Savings Groups in Ethiopia, Rwanda and Tanzania. Gender & Inclusion Analysis – Key Findings and Recommendations.

The DSG Gender & Inclusion Analysis Tool should be used in conjunction with the DSG Toolkit: Tools to Support Safe and Gender-responsive Digitization of Savings Groups available in English and Kinyarwanda.
