Gender-based violence (GBV) is a serious violation of human rights and a life-threatening health and protection issue. It is estimated that one in three women will experience sexual or physical violence in their lifetime. Using the My Watchman™ app, targets/victims of SGBV can take a picture, or record a short video and upload it to help preserve evidence. Every SGBV call is recorded and documented.
My Watchman™ SGBV hotline is monitored by a dedicated team, trained in handling every call with empathy and with the highest level of Privacy and Confidentiality. When the appropriate emergency responder(s) is dispatched, the shift supervisor is required to send an SGBV alert to the necessary government and non-governmental authorities.
