Discover the VictimTech ecosystem
These associations, companies, or public services innovate technologically to protect victims.
Their applications and connected objects make it possible to raise the alarm, collect evidence, or raise awareness of the different types of violence as well as the proper ways to respond to them.
The Witness Angel Project is working to create information exchanges and collaborations between these initiatives, within an informal collective called SYNERGY.

Mémo de vie
Mémo de Vie is a free and secure French online platform to save testimonies, life stories, official documents and media related to a situation of violence (in a couple, in the family, at work...).
Thanks to its library and useful contacts, it also provides access to resources and contacts adapted to the needs and situation of the victim.
The French startup MyEli has developed a connected jewel, and the mobile application linked to it by Bluetooth.
By clicking on the button of the jewel, it is possible to notify your loved ones that you are safe, or on the contrary to warn them of a dangerous situation. This alert can trigger an audible alarm, the sending of a GPS tracking, and the audio recording of the event.

In the event of a aggression, this application raises the alarm through a sound audible several kilometers away, and an automatic call to the emergency services.
Hollaback is an international movement to fight street harassment in all its forms.
Their mobile application allows people to testify about the violence they have suffered, and to receive support and advice from the community.
The French association HeHop (Help for Hope) has developed a mobile application that captures photo, audio and video files of violent events. The media captured by the app is automatically recorded on the blockchain and secured in a digital vault.
To reveal the evidence, two digital keys are required - the user's, and one provided, upon request, by HeHop. The evidence is thus traceable from the moment it is captured to the moment it is handed over to the investigators, guaranteeing that it will not be altered.

e-Enfance is a French association that aims to protect minors who are victims of violence on the Internet by making them aware of good digital practices. It intervenes in particular in schools with students, their parents and professionals.

"Witness Angel Lab"
Witness Angel Lab is a French collective developing technological solutions to enable victims of violences to collect evidence at any time, while guaranteeing the privacy of citizens.
