Discover how we stand out

SafeBangle Technologies is at the forefront of developing innovative safety solutions that enable real-time reporting of gender-based violence and physical assaults, even in the absence of internet connectivity. Our primary focus is Uganda, and we have ambitions to extend our impact across Africa.

Our comprehensive solution comprises two main components: the SafeBangle, a wearable safety bracelet, and an interactive web platform. The SafeBangle bracelet is designed to send immediate alerts to authorities, friends, and trusted guardians, complete with location details, at the press of a button. This functionality is available even without internet connectivity.

The interactive web platform allows users to update their trusted contacts when they move to new locations. It also provides organizations with a dashboard to manage their settings, view alert history, and access resources.

SafeBangle aims to be a global force and the preferred partner within an international movement dedicated to ending GBV. We aspire to be recognized globally for our unwavering commitment to the dignity of individuals. Join us in our mission to create a safer world.

Our Mission

We’re propelling this mission forward by mobilizing resources, welcoming new allies, financing innovative programs and technology, and establishing a solid foundation of evidence for the field. Join us in our endeavor to create a safer world and empower individuals to live without fear.

Mak Researchers Partner with SafeBangle Technologies to Roll out a Real-Time Domestic Violence Reporting Bracelet

Women make up almost half of the world’s population, however only 65% of them use the internet and even fewer have a smartphone or use digital services, leaving a substantial number of women disconnected from the digital world. SafeBangle Technologies aims to change this by providing innovative, life-saving tools that are accessible and easy to use. Our SafeBangle bracelet ensures women can report incidents of domestic violence and get help immediately. Read more about our efforts and how you can support us.

Our Focus at SafeBangle Technologies

We leverage technology to foster safer communities and promote gender equality. Our interventions are centered around

01

Response

We ensure coordinated and timely responses to GBV incidents through data-driven insights and active community engagement.

02

Prevention

We equip individuals with discreet tools to signal distress and access immediate assistance, enhancing their personal safety.

03

Empowerment

We empower women and girls to become their own advocates for safety and well-being, fostering a culture of resilience and courage.

Sexual and gender-based violence in conflict is not only a horrendous and life-changing crime, most often perpetrated against women and girls; it is also used as a tactic of war, to terrorize families, dehumanize communities and destabilize societies, so that they struggle to recover for years or even decades after the guns fall silent.”
U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

Discover the powerful insights that our statistics reveal.

We are incredibly proud of our inaugural portfolio and work over the past few years, including:

GBV is a pervasive and alarming problem that disproportionately affects women and girls in crisis situations. It undermines their safety, dignity, and well-being, exacerbating the already dire conditions they face.
SafeBangle serves as a powerful tool for prevention, early warning, and response to GBV incidents. It enables individuals at risk or experiencing violence to discreetly and quickly send distress signals, triggering an immediate and coordinated response from police, relatives, friends and other trusted contacts and guardians and humanitarian actors.
The SafeBangle’s strengths lies in its ability to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and reach of GBV interventions by complementing the existing GBV programming by providing real-time data on incidents, enabling targeted response and resource allocation. This technology-driven approach ensures a more proactive and comprehensive response to GBV, reducing harm, and providing timely support to survivors.

Discover Our Journey So Far

SafeBangle Technologies has a proven track record of successful collaborations. We partnered with Makerere University School of Public Health, the Medical College of Wisconsin, and Somero Uganda on a project to study the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on gender-based violence among women and girls in informal settlements in Kampala.

The SafeBangle intervention is a multifaceted project designed to address GBV and Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) through the innovative use of technology, specifically the SafeBangle bracelet – a wearable device which serves as a tool for empowerment, protection, and communication, particularly targeted at adolescent girls and women facing heightened risks, with a focus on vulnerable communities.

The SafeBangle intervention involves reaching out to communities and engage with different stakeholders to better understand the GBV challenge in the community and their preferences with a goal of identifying entry points for SafeBangle solution and build a community support and by-in.


Our team conducted surveys and focus group interviews, providing valuable insights into the prevalence of GBV and the responses to it.
We also improved the functionality and usability of the SafeBangle interactive web platform and provided necessary support to GBV survivors. Our commitment to creating a safer world is unwavering, and we continue to strive for excellence in all our endeavors.

Our technology empowers individuals, particularly women and children, to report incidents of violence in real-time. This fosters a safer environment and promotes transparency and accountability.
