EIN 82 – 1206435 Registered office: 5217 Lightning View Road, Columbia, MD 21045, USA
• Red Dot Foundation is registered as a Sec 8, Not for Profit company in India.
The Red Dot Foundation Group works at the intersection of gender, technology, communications, data and urban planning and Safecity is its flagship program.
Safecity is a platform that crowdsources personal stories of sexual harassment and abuse in public spaces. This data which maybe 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 causes behavior that leads to violence and work on strategies for solutions.
Since their launch on 26 Dec 2012 they have collected over 10,000 stories from over 50 cities in India, Kenya, Cameroon and Nepal.
Safecity aims to make cities safer by encouraging equal access to public spaces for everyone especially women, through the use of crowdsourced data and technology.
