The laws about sexual violence in Japan are horrible and archaic. Spring is an NGO that works to raise awareness about these laws so that they can be changed. They have a manual process for petitioning and raising awareness. Our goal is to build them a mobile app and administration dashboard to make the process more scalable.
Victims and potential victims of sexual violence. In particular women and children. We are building this app specifically for Japan but it has applications globally.
Spring is the first incorporated sexual assault survivors’ organization in Japan.
They are engaged in advocacy activities including optimizing the use of sex crime laws, as well as amendments to the law to make it as fair as possible to victims.
Spring is taking action to build a society where sexual assault survivors can find hope. Spring was established on July 7, 2017 in order to help sexual abuse survivors recover from their “frozen” condition and to help bring spring to those who are now living in the winter.

The current architecture can be found here.
A rough design has been created. A mobile application has been created using React Native but various screens still need to be created. A working administrative panel has also been created. The administrative panel, various mobile views/screens, and the database all need to be linked.
