If you’re more of a visual person, please take a look at these videos from our research in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka on the experiences and challenges of getting and using an ID for these seven women. All respondents gave their permission and approval (Tilakeshwari did not wish to be filmed and so with her permission we overlaid B-roll with her voice).
All the blogs from our research are on Caribou Digital’s Medium page.
This research is funded by Australia’s Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade, via its support for the Commonwealth Digital ID Initiative. We would like to express our thanks to all our respondents, the DFAT iXc team, DFAT Sri Lanka, Sparkwinn Research, Big Blue Communication and our advisory panel for their support.
