Easy Rescue is an application developed in an effort to support who are subject to violence and fear their safety.
Easy Rescue Application is Updated! With My Seatmate, Women Will Feel More Secure During Their Journeys.
According to a research performed by Vodafone Group Foundation in 9 countries, including Turkey, for revealing the effects of domestic violence, rate of working people who are exposed to such kind of violence in the world is 37%, while the rate in Turkey is 42%. 1 of every 3 working people believes that a mobile application which provides access to immediate support services can decrease the effects of domestic violence on professional life to a considerable extent. The idea of having such an application attracts the most significant attention in Turkey with a rate of 45%.
As Vodafone Turkey Foundation, we enhanced our “Easy Rescue” application, which was developed in an effort to combat violence against women, with “My Seatmate” add-on. Thanks to My Seatmate, women will be able to share the route of their journey with particular people and communicate with them with one click. Those specific people will be informed immediately if any unexpected changes in the route occur.
You can reach Toolkit on Domestic Violence and Abuse at Work, which was prepared by Gender Mainstreaming Expert Jane Pillinger for Vodafone Group Foundation, here.
We hope that this toolkit, which explains violence, the effects of violence on workplaces, and the actions employees and executives can take to minimize those effects along with examples and case studies, will help increase awareness and consciousness about domestic violence.
