Why the Impact of Technology Was Limited – Huawei BLOG

The Kenyan government has released a new report based on interviews with young people across the nation that analyses the impact of COVID-19.

It reviews some of the initiatives implemented in response and proposes a roadmap for the future. Technology is a key theme of the report, primarily around access to education when schools were closed, but also in other aspects such as cushioning the economic impacts and in access to health information and services. Despite some promising practices, gender inequality emerged as a key issue and the overall findings were not positive. For example:

During school closures, most adolescents were not able to fully engage in remote learning due to limited access to digital services and the internet, lack of access to computers, radio, or TV, competing demands on their time and lack of a conducive environment to study.

In this article, I will share the report findings and give my thoughts.

Background to the Report

The Generation Equality Forum (GEF) held in Paris from 30 June to 2 July brought together governments, corporations, NGOs, youth-led groups, and foundations to secure concrete, ambitious, and transformative commitments on gender equality. Shaped by the Action Coalitions as a world roadmap for gender equality,  one of the Action Coalitions is using technology and innovation for gender equality.

During the Forum the President of Kenya highlighted Kenya’s 12 commitments towards the elimination of gender-based violence (GBV) and achieving gender equality. Great progress has been made in the past towards gender equality in Kenya, including achieving gender parity in school enrolment at the primary school level and 100% transition from primary school to secondary school, and also policy and legal measures against GBV. But with the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, the gains made in the past decades are at risk of being rolled back.

To understand the situation, the government commissioned a report to document the challenges facing Kenyan adolescents during the COVID-19 pandemic. This new report Promises to Keep: Impact of COVID-19 on Adolescents in Kenya will also inform the government’s roadmap to support adolescents’ current and future well-being.

The report leverages data collected on the social, education, health, and economic effects of COVID-19 on adolescents in June 2020 and again in February 2021 from four cohorts. The quantitative research covered around 4,000 youth and the qualitative research covered around 200.
