Social Sector Internships with Safecity- Outreach Volunteer

Safecity.in is an online platform created to map areas of sexual abuse- ranging from comments to physical abuse and rape. All it requires is to fill a simple form about the location where the abuse occurred and the category of abuse (it can be filed anonymously as well). This gets plotted on a map and in time will create “hotspots” or unsafe areas of a city. As the numbers of pins grow, this converts into a hotspot. The larger the number of pins, the more prominent the hotspot is. This information can be used 1. By individuals to check potential safe and unsafe areas 2. By the law enforcement agencies to increase security measures in unsafe areas 3.
