Safecity is a platform that crowdsources personal stories of sexual harassment and abuse in public spaces. This data which may be anonymous gets aggregated as hot spots on a map indicating trends at a local level. The idea is to make this data useful for individuals, local communities and local administration to identify factors that cause behavior that leads to violence and work on strategies for solutions.
Since our launch on 26 Dec 2012 we have collected over 10,000 stories from over 50 cities in India, Kenya, Cameroon, Nepal, Nigeria and Trinidad & Tobago and directly reached over 400,000 people.
We are registered as a not for profit in the United States as Red Dot Foundation Global and in India as Red Dot Foundation.
Safecity aims to make cities safer by encouraging equal access to public spaces for everyone especially women, through the use of crowdsourced data, community engagement and institutional accountability.

App wanted too much personal info.
Developer Response ,
Hi there! You can actually report completely anonymously; it's the first button on the front screen once the app loads. However, your concern is significant, and so we are working to re-design the app to make the anonymous button more evident. Any questions/further suggestions, please contact me email@example.com.
