SAFEHOUSE NETWORK

MEDIACORP YOUNG CREATIVES COMPETITION 2017 (CYBER)

 

THE SITUATION
The silence of family violence is perpetuated because of two main challenges.
1. Neighbours see domestic violence as a private matter and are unsure about when and how to intervene.
2. Victims find it hard to call for help in a safe and discreet way.

INSIGHT
Culturally, people are unwilling to step in as family violence is confined within the four walls of a home.

IDEA
Wireless tech enables us to work around and break down these physical boundaries.
What if home WiFi networks can be a way for neighbours to connect and offer aid to victims?
