Feedback from test users

Why was I created?

As violence against women – particularly intimate partner violence and sexual violence – is a major public health problem and a violation of women’s human rights. Global estimates published by WHO indicate that about 1 in 3 of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence in their lifetime. This is our starting point but our solution is not limited to women only. 

The AI tool is expected to act as a reliable source of information for women on their rights and where to seek different levels of support. The tool will be providing step by step recommendations to victims and act as a helping friend. This intervention is expected to address a chronic development issue and to have a cross-cutting impact on UN Social Developmen Goals:

SDG3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages 

SDG5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

I was created by an amazing team of people that believe that world can be a wonderful place for us all.

Interested in what we are building and want to help?

For the AI tool, the more good quality data we get, the better AINO is able to help the victim to become a survivor. If you would like to play around with the prototype and help us with research, data collection or development. Please, reach out! 

Are you a survivor of domestic violence? Please, share your story! 

We have learned from the survivors that a survivor story can bring hope and courage into the difficult situation. To help the current victims to become survivors we want to hear stories of survivors to be used in awareness marketing and in the tool, and by that give hope for those looking for a way out.
