Plan International Create SMS Helpline to Tackle Violence Against Children in Benin

This case study looks at how Plan International, a global organization dedicated to improving the lives of children around the world, integrated FrontlineSMS into their work in Benin. Plan International’s use of FrontlineSMS for violence tracking was piloted in Benin, and this case study demonstrates the role FrontlineSMS software played, and lessons learned from the pilot. Click here to read the full case study.

This program has now expanded to include ‘Zemidjan’, or ‘Zem’, the motorcycle riders that are common in Benin. Zem are trained to report violence against children through SMS sent to Plan Benin’s FrontlineSMS installation. This is then mapped using Ushahidi and passed on to government officials. You can read more about it in this blog post from our Foundation Board Member, Linda Raftree, and watch a video made by Plan Benin about the program! Don’t forget to check out the case study, too.
