Thousands of kids and youngsters are victims of sexual offenses and harassment every day, especially on digital channels and platforms. Chatbots help end them.
Over the last 100 years, Save The Children has helped to ensure that the world's most vulnerable children survive, learn and are protected. Every year, it reaches tens of millions of children in over 117 countries through our work.
Today, thousands of kids and youngsters every year are victims of sexual offences, especially in digital channels and platforms.
In Denmark, Save The Children has launched an initiative to combat digital-based sexual offence, called SletDet.
Our main objective was to break down barriers that prevent kids to report incidents, and seek advice to deal with cyberbullying and online abuse.
SletDet works specifically with children and young adults to help them understand their rights if someone is posting their pictures online without their consent. The challenge the team faced was their telephone services were available only between 14.00-16.00 twice a week and children were hesitant to speak to the counsellors.
BotSupply helped the customer by deploying a chatbot, and helping them keep support lines open 24/7.
