Update on "WAWAS" project due to COVID-19

Due to the Global Crisis caused by COVID-19, our president timely interrupted the school cycle since the 12th of March to the 30th of April, until further notice. Therefore, we cannot provide our free legal and psychological services personally, however we have our psychologists, lawyers and social workers available by phone, WhatsApp, Facebook or Telegram to provide services remotely.

On the other hand, as there are many people that cannot identify alone a situation of violence, we have developed a virtual instrument to help potential victims to recognize their own conditions and value whether they need immediate help or not. This online form can be easily filled out from any device with few MB of internet, it takes only 3 minutes. Currently, it is usual that in low-income countries, youth and women have just some money on their phones to access internet, because it results very expensive to have a landline or WiFi at home. In Bolivia during the sanitary emergency the government is subsidizing a monthly amount of internet for cellphones as well as electricity and water (for three months) Therefore, our form is available and accessible for almost all through a simple click

For this reason, the main objective is that the home and family become the safest places for all its members and from there a change of mentality is generated in favor of a culture of non-violence and peaceful coexistence with other actors. of the society.
