Building apps to counter people trafficking

Over the weekend I happened upon Dave Batstone talking at Ted South Africa about how he and his team create apps and websites to help people to engage with the trafficing issue. The video is worth a watch.

The Slavery Map website allows you to see where trafficing has been reported – it isn't happening on the other side of the world but in a town near you.  Very powerful.

Free2work is an app available for iphone and Android which allows you to see how a brand you are buying  scores on trafficing. The companies are given right of reply after the investigation has been made. Have a look!
