GBV tête-à-tête is a bespoke technology developed as technology leverage for survivor-centered approach intervention that provided capacity building for psychological first aid to survivors of gender-based violence in Benue state, Nigeria- Capacity Building and Technology Adoption for Strengthening GBV Awareness, Prevention and Response through Community-Based Psycho-social Support.
The overarching goal of this intervention was community level capacity building for increased SGBV prevention, reporting and access to mental health support services by women and girls in Benue state. Subsequently, adoption of mobile app technology to drive the awareness on the availability of psycho-social support services in addition to continuous capacity of community-based psychological first aiders across the state and Nigeria via bespoke technology product became necessary.
Building the GBV Tête-à-tête mobile app from scratch was very interesting and I get to work with a couple of the bright minds at Centre For Women’s Health and Information Nigeria (CEWHIN).
I put a series of my skills to work, including but not limited to C#, Xamarin.Forms, .Net Core, Visual Studio, Azure, GitHub, XAML, Photoshop, Adobe XD.
