Social Apps

Technology also brings us good stuff!. Now we can use our smart phone to help solve social issues. Check out these 4 Social Apps:

1) Aqui Estoy (Colombia)

It is a Free App for smart phones (Android) and computers.

Yo Digo Aqui Estoy is an App that allows citizens to report child labour throughout Colombia by taking a picture of the boy or girls and uploading it with the App. The main goal is to detect the most common places were child labour is found.

¿Have you ever ask yourself under which conditions does the people that manufature your products work?

Although slavery seems to be abolished, nowadays there are still around 27 million people working under this condition. Without knowing, behind the food we eat and the clothes and jewely we wear there are still people being enslaved.

By putting your regular shopping (clothing, food, etc) in Slavery Footprint you can check how many ‘slaves’ indirectly ‘work’ for you. The idea of this app is to rise awareness on the impact of our actions.

This is a Free-App (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch)
