Women in Tech Breakfast

When: 28 September 2018 from 9:00 a.m.

Where: JoziHub

Azile Investments will officially launched a mobile app on National Women's Day, which is targeted at helping potential victims of crime and domestic abuse. After a request by the Department of Telecommunications and Postal Services to create solutions to gender-based violence using ICT, Azile Investments came up with the idea of the HearMe Panic Button. The HearMe Panic Button is a community app that links to local police and crime prevention agencies. It was first piloted in May in Pimville Zone Six, Soweto. Following the pilot, the rate of break-ins dropped from at least three houses a week to only one in three months, according to the app's creators.
