Women and Tech: Zariya - Women's Safety and Incident Reporting App
Build an app that leverages access to technology to tackle 1) under-reporting of violent crimes against women and 2) to enhance entry to justice. Women facing violence often fear seeking out help, due to stigma and difficulties of determining how to access help. Secondly, legal cases go on for years in the courts. In sensitive cases, justice is about timeliness. Justice delayed is justice denied. Better laws and mission-driven NGOs are coming into place. The app should enable women to anonymously report and immediately & safely connect with service providers via telephonic conversations. Following first-instance connections, a woman can pave her justice journey. Service providers may include: police, legal aid, psychologists, hospitals, banks, NGOs.
