BeyondABC uses technology to educate youth living in at-risk areas, equipping them with the relevant survival skills they need to protect themselves from human trafficking.
BeyondABC is an educational game that teaches kids the survival skills they need to protect themselves from human trafficking. It will focus on preventive measures such as how to not fall prey to human trafficking, what resources are available to them and what their rights are as a child. The game will collect data from the user interactions that can be used by anti-trafficking organizations to know what vital knowledge kids in different regions are lacking. The app will be part of the Aakash tablet; the software is currently aimed at providing an education to kids in low-income communities in India. Partnering organizations will receive tablets to test the app within their program. The app will provide kids with a quality education through the Aakash tablets software, they will learn how to protect themselves from human traffickers, and will provide organizations with data that will help them strengthen their program.
