Our Mission We are solving the problem of lack of affordable & immediate reporting mechanisms for violence.
With one-click, SafeBangle supports potential victims of violence access immediate help from trusted relatives and friends. Our mission is to empower women and young adults, support a life free of fear, and bringing to light cases of violence that may have gone unreported.
More than 1 in 5 women aged 15-49 (22%) in the world report having experienced sexual violence at some point in time, UDHS, 2016. Gender-Based Violence (GBV) reinforces inequalities between men and women, girls and boys with most of the victims and survivors being women and girls.
Despite global progress in reducing GBV, it is still a major factor of life for many women in Uganda and continues to impact survivor’s immediate sexual, physical, and psychological health. The prevalence of GBV is attributed to numerous factors:
1) Lack of social control mechanisms and poverty
2) Inefficiency in existing mechanisms meant to provide support and safety to women when they are threatened.
3) No cell reception in certain areas as the telecommunications equipment is too expensive for local communities to afford
4) Existing solutions such as mobile applications are complex and challenging to maneuver in times of distress.
What we do best
At SafeBangle Technologies, we are dedicated to designing and developing innovative robust and cheap solutions to curb Gender-Based-Violence and physical assaults to make the world a safer place.
We have developed a wearable safety tool that can be used by the would-be victims of assaults, SGBV, and other forms of injustice to call their trusted relatives and loved ones for help. The wearable safety bracelet is a tool for safety used primarily by women and young adolescents to be their own champions against violence.
SafeBangle bracelet is a direct response to the feedback of different groups of people in need of technology to safeguard their staff, relatives, and friends. When discretely triggered, the bracelet sends an alarm by SMS to a chosen group of individuals with the wearer’s live location to be rescued immediately.
The bracelet is physically small and fashionable with a user-friendly interface for both men and women of all ages. SafeBangle is crafted to be culturally acceptable to achieve discretion and made with state-of-the-art wearable technology for instant alert without using the internet.
