Programs making an impact


The global pandemic has compounded existing concerns around domestic abuse leading to a significant increase in cases. Extended periods of lockdown under stressful conditions have highlighted the fact that not everyone can find safety at home. In 2021, the Governor of Puerto Rico declared a state of emergency due to gender-based violence.


Coordinadora Paz para las Mujeres and Seguro Project created a chatbot to provide a confidential and interactive interface for accessing support and guidance in a time of need. It helps victims of gender-based-violence in Puerto Rico to identify local resources and information relevant to their individual situation.
