PROJECT TO HELP WOMEN AND CHILDREN

Abstract

Physical violence and cases of serious physical assault growing

found today in our African societies towards women and children

have serious repercussions on the psychological state of health of these layers

vulnerable. These repercussions can affect behavior, emotions

and the cognitions of these people that can be arranged in the form of acute stress or

post-traumatic stress disorder according to chronicity. Our project aims to

create a platform in the form of intelligent application that will enable women and

child victims living in a hamlet as far away as it is, to be able to

in contact immediately the act of violence and aggression suffered with a team of help

psychological and social listening to benefit from a debriefing, an orientation,

listening and counseling via the mobile app.

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

This project allows the victims to talk about their experience, to break the silence, to blame themselves, to free themselves from the grip of suffering and to take back their lives. The program specifically allows: • name violence and identify its different forms • breaking the silence with respect to the violence experienced by the victims • try to prevent the adoption of violent behavior in the future; • try to break the cycle of violence that is perpetuated through the generations • teach victims to protect themselves in situations of violence; • allow victims to share their experiences • to find ways to prevent the trauma and other consequences of violence • learn that violence is unacceptable

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

The great innovation with this project is its mobile application character easy to access. Because in the light of many experiences, we believe that one of the root causes that reoffend the phenomenon of violence is "silence". Thus our mobile application, will give the opportunity to all the victims, or witnesses of the cases of violence even at the bottom of the world, to sound the alarm bell to denounce, and to benefit as quickly as possible an assistance of our agents (the psys, legal advisers, and sociologists). We are more than convinced that our innovation will bring a lot more in the fight against the violence suffered by women and children around the world by bringing a consultation of proximity to the women and children in need of our help thanks to the contribution of the digital our project.
