What we are doing to solve the problem


Organize a village into groups to form a local rescue digital network by neighbors that can communicate to each other in real time in case of emergency. All the formed groups are connected using a cheap and simple device or phone application that is triggered by a victim to alert every home (and police) on his network by an alarm and Citizen Name display for quick rescue.
