In this year 2022, for the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, CAWTAR announces its campaign entitled "Making the invisible visible" which will aim to enable visually impaired and blind, deaf and mute women to benefit from a gender-based violence prevention mechanism.
A free mobile prevention application named "SafeNess" was launched two years ago to protect women from violence and harassment in public places.
This application is available on Playstore or Applestore, it covers 3 countries : Tunisia, Jordan and Morocco. It allows you to choose a list of trusted people and warn them in case of danger by a GPS system.
CAWTAR is constantly improving the functionalities of this application and developing it so that it is accessible to visually impaired and blind, and deaf people.
This campaign will be carried out in close collaboration with governmental, civil society and private sector partners as well as other UN agencies, in order to optimise efforts and achieve a considerable degree of efficiency.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
