We will lead a design jam where participants create low-fidelity prototypes in response to the unique context of “the last billion”—people with little or no access to stable, reliable internet or smartphones. After explaining quickly how design jams work, we’ll introduce the constraints for the participants’ designs with 2 personas that we’ve developed from field research and ongoing partnerships with small NGOs in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania who work on HIV/AIDS prevention for adolescent girls and young women.

The designs will respond to the prompt: How might we enable adolescent girls and young women with little access to technology to raise their voices so that those responsible for serving them can better respond to their needs?

This is a Shed session.
