“Cell Phones For Survivors” ~ Donate your old phone
The RINJ Foundation has been obtaining donations of used smart-phones.Our more technically-inclined volunteers refurbish these units and programme them for the country of destination to which they are shipped and picked up by persons who have reached out to us and with whom we have a need to communicate: women and youth who have escaped from sex slavery; volunteers of limited means; women in trouble; and persons in a position to help others.
Introducing Digital Data Apps For Collecting Sex Crime Information and Evidence
In under-developed and developing nations, providing more and more women with smart-phones is increasing the collection and distribution of needed data. We are also processing rape-kits and supplying kits where needed on a more reactive basis.
Apps are under development to create a three-page intake form. We are preparing a better system for collecting evidence of rape in war-torn regions. Combining smart-phone photographs with text responses to standardized, formatted questions, so that anyone can collect short-answer data queries directly from the crime scene.
The RINJ Foundation already uses a simplified blend of two applications achieving a good result but the mission-specific app will be much better.
