The onset of the global lockdown led to a slowdown in economies and mass firing across industries. The constant worry about the safety of self and loved ones adversely affected mental health for many. 

But, the lowest point for humanity was the increase in domestic violence cases across the globe. India alone saw an increase of 2X in domestic violence cases.

Between April and May, NCW received a total of 3027 complaints across 22 categories of crimes against women, of which 1428 (47.2%) were cases of domestic violence and intimate partner violence.

Our client NASSCOM Foundation realized that women's safety was the need of the hour, and they wanted to build a women empowerment app to assist and support the victims and their families during this crisis.

The client wished to build an application that enables the victims and their families to reach out to authorities, Support Groups, and legal bodies to seek counsel. They aimed to create a safe and inclusive place for the survivor of gender-based violence. A digital space that empowers the victims and their families with information and resources to make informed choices & assist them in their recovery.

The client wanted to build a technology-enabled empowering app for women that was easy to access from the country's remotest areas. It was a haven where they could seek help and support without prejudice. A solution that empowered them with choices to take action in a crisis with a simple click of buttons. 

Thus the solution needed multiple attributes to enable legal, medical, emotional, and other support required by the victims and their families. This required the collation and mapping of massive amounts of data to ensure the right help was always available to the users.

Since the application was being designed for women across different segments of society, the simplicity of the interface was of utmost importance.
