Safecity Monthly Updates – January

Safecity is committed to creating safer communities for everyone. Our goal is to empower citizens by helping them understand the potential risks they could face in different neighbourhoods. We can do this by sharing our experiences or others anonymously and make these stories available for all. The platform serves law enforcement agencies with information on sexual harassment and other crimes occurring in public and private spaces. The platform’s data helps keep public spaces safe by enabling authorities to keep track of incidents and prevent sexual harassment in the future.

SafeCircle is a safe listening circle for survivors of violence and trauma to find support. The space is facilitated by our CEO Supreet K Singh and through these listening circles, survivors have found a community of support and solidarity where they share strategies and learn from each other’s experiences. Since May 2020 we have been providing psychosocial support to over 25 survivors.

Changemaker of the Month – Deeksha Verma

“I really enjoyed working with Red Dot Foundation. I learnt many things. I did not just develop confidence but also a really different mindset and broad view to look at people and stimuli to different situations. I feel safety is one of the very basic elements of a healthy and happy society which needs many improvements.”
