Our mission is to build a powerful safety network in which every woman feels safe in her/their respective communities.
Taking safety into our own hands means revolutionizing women’s ability to enact safety measures within their local communities.
WOMEN CREATING A SAFER WORLD TOGETHER
Our mission is to create a network of communities through which women can feel more safe and secure going through their daily lives. SafeUP communities strive to increase women’s sense of security and to prevent cases of sexual and physical harassment and assault. At the push of a button, our users can make contact with nearby verified guardians who are trained to protect users from endangerment. Our goal is to make the world a safer place for you, me, your children, and every woman in the world.
SafeUP was born out of frustration with our current reality: 1 in 3 women experience sexual violence. We’re envisioning a world in which women are empowered to be their own guardians against gender violence. It is time to take back the night, the streets, and our bodies. We cannot sit idly by as a war continues to be waged against women’s bodies. Together we are stronger.
THE STORY OF SAFEUP
WE NEEDED TO MAKE A CHANGE
"Nine years ago, I was at a house party when I suddenly noticed that one of my friends had disappeared. My friend and I searched for her in a panic, and, as we headed upstairs, we heard her voice amidst a group of men’s voices. We went into one of the rooms and there they were - the men and our friend, half-naked, fighting them. When they noticed us, the men immediately fled. We managed to get there just in time - luck and women saved my friend that night. In 2019 I decided to develop an app that would unite women under the common goal of mutual protection and safety. I believe that together we can harness the incredible power of women in order to change the world."
