THR Media Launches the Herfessions App to Provide Support to Female Survivors of Gender Based Violence
The THR Media, a new media and technology company joined her voice in commemorating the #16daysofactivisim with her maiden edition of a symposium themed‘HERfessions– Proffering Solutions to Sexual Gender Based Violence. Stakeholders and experts who work with women and girls from around the country gathered to discuss ways to fight the menace of Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGBV).
Amongst the panel of discussants were, Dr. Gbonjubola Babalola Abiri (a certified psychiatrist), Olayinka Adeyemi (Director, Office of the Public Defender), Dr. Perpetua Mbanefo, (a medical doctor and abuse survivor), Olufunmilayo Akinlami (a Child Protection Expert), Bose Ironsi (Founder, Women’s Rights And Health Project) with Simi Olusola (Founder, Aspilos Foundation ) as moderator
In line with this call, THR Media has launched a mobile app, Herfessions, which provides an anonymous platform designed to enable support to victims and survivors (of SGBV); ensuring that any woman requiring assistance will be able to reach the requisite support, access relief, and would be provided with the education and tools necessary to heal and thrive.
Osasu Paul-Azino, the curator/Founder explained that the mobile app has the ability to map the resources available to women experiencing violence, build a community of support, and also provide anonymity. It will be a mobile and virtual ecosystem of collaborative agencies that will provide legal aid, vocational/educational, health, psycho-social support, shelter, feeding, and government enforcement agencies. It is currently available for download on Google Play store.
She encourages women to speak up and find help, which are the things the Herfessions app can provide.
