About Us

Our mission is to create and maintain a sustainable virtual safe space where women are able to seek out help from their community, in a secure and supportive environment.

We aim to enhance the ecosystem of existing solutions rather than replace them to expand their beneficiaries & meet the needs of more women and girls worldwide.

Safe YOU aims to be a key resource for evidence based policy making through our sophisticated AI data analysis system. This will lead to the prediction & prevention of Violence Against Women & Girls.

Safe YOU’s innovative technical solution is designed to accelerate progress of SDG number 5, Gender Equality.

We dream of a day where Safe YOU will no longer be a necessary application for women but until that day we will continue to work to help protect, educate and empower women all around the world.
