'iSafeGuard' is a personal safety app for women and young girls! It is our tribute to our young girls and women who face immense challenges to live safely in today’s world.
This community-based app is designed to help women and young girls in unsafe situations to:
* Let their friends and guardians track their location when they are on the move.
* Send distress calls (SOS messages) with location details to preset phone numbers of their friends and guardians.
* Alert iSafeGuard volunteers (users who have opted to help their community) near them to reach out for help.
