Sexual violence based on gender is a reality in the world that nobody ignores. I am an African woman in me runs the blood purely Congolese. My country is renowned as the capital of rape in the world, wars is tribal conflicts make daily melody in my country the Democratic Republic of Congo. In the Democratic Republic of the Congo 1250 women are subjected to violence every day. That is to say, 50 women are raped every day without reacting to it would be to promote hell in my country. That's why I participated in the contest called hackthon organized by the internew with the support of the european union. The umoja group that I represented won the prize in second position thanks to the design of an Android application. The purpose of this application is to fight against the scourges of violence suffered by Congolese women through the use of the new technology and information .zombo-alert app will help to strengthen the security of Congolese women. this application will allow direct contact of the victim and institutions in the field of gender-based violence. that is to say, this application will facilitate the information and the direct reaction of the victim and the institution that manages the violence Later I'll publish the details on our zombie-alert app. This could never be achieved without the hand of the big worldpulse family, being a worlpulse member was what the members of the jury called "winning in advance", I was initially favor because I had an experience in the use of new technology which is the worldpulse website. I call world pulse a family because it encouraged me to go ahead, to turn my limits into opportunuites.I dedicate these awards to the founder of worldpulse and to all the worldpulse's fighter women who militate woman's right in their society.
