During the campaign, we saw support come from many sides and perspectives. We heard from colleagues that news had spread about the project from West Africa to Geneva, from the Philippines to Washington DC.
One highlight of the campaign? When we received a Monday morning email from the “Office of Gloria Steinem,” sharing that she would post a project endorsement on Twitter. This email was one of the most exciting that we received.
We’re very proud to have the support of the important advocacy and research organization Report the Abuse, AWID and, since the campaign ended, we have also been joined by a national US sorority and several more women’s rights and anti-violence organizations in sub-Saharan Africa.
Code created an extensive African-language mobile app, “About Ebola,” with Snapp.cc, and we welcome partners who would like to see the basic content of the Rape Crisis Counseling app in their own languages.
Interested in joining us? Get in touch with me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to introduce yourself.
We are looking for women’s rights organizations, anti-violence organizations and communities who would like to use our Rape Crisis Counseling app curriculum for training their own volunteers in crisis centers and health programs.
Also, we are designing the resource to provide in-hand support to rape survivors and their advocates, to help them navigate through the health system.
Next Step: Mobile Curriculum
Right now, the Code Innovation team is hard at work on a first version of our mobile app’s content and curriculum. This is a big process, and we’re taking our time to get primary training materials from partners including the Pittsburgh Action against Rape coalition, the Washington DC Rape Crisis Center and the Victim Assistance Training from the US Department of Justice.
