On-site data verification and ad-hoc audits Global At Triggerise

Background and context

Triggerise is an organization that uses its digital platform called Tiko to motivate users – primarily young women and adolescent girls – to make positive choices. We use nudges like reminders, discounts, in person and digital follow-ups, and reward points to encourage our users to access and use healthy products and services. We also support them in becoming entrepreneurs and adding value to their economies. Triggerise’s reward points can be used to redeem products and services at local shops, or as subsidies to cover the cost of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, removing the cost to access for the users, who are primarily 15–24-year-old adolescent girls and young women (AGYW).

Triggerise has operations in the following countries either by having offices or by working through local partners in Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, India, Burkina Faso and South Africa.
