Sagar Sodah, a visually-impaired programmer based in Mumbai, is trying to help women report sexual abuse. Sodah has only 10% vision, but that has never stopped him from achieving his goals. The chatbot that he designed for Safecity, a program that simulates structured conversations over Facebook Messenger is accessible on mobile phones. Most women don’t talk about it because of the stigma that surrounds the society. He feels that the chatbot is an effective outreach as it not only helps the women to speak up, but to also report cases that might go unnoticed. Keep marching on, Sagar!
