Donate to the “Search for Missing Children”
Since our foundation in 2010 we have found more almost 3000 kids. However, even more children -4 thousand- disappear without a trace annually. We do our best to reduce this awful figure.
We need your support!
Apart from searching for the missing we fight against child slavery, run several educational programs and workshops that teach children the basics of personal and social safety, train volunteers and rescuers jointly with the Emergencies Ministry and the Red Cross and organize various charity events across Russia. We also defend children’s rights through our work as experts in State bodies of Russian Federation such as the Public Chamber and the Investigation Committee.
Our current key project is a free Electronic Children’s search and security system “Bagheera”. It will ,firstly, allow parents to trace their children and immediately know if they are endangered and, secondly, would increase efficiency and scope of searches in case a child still went missing.
With the support of allShapes IT company We have already developed an alfa-version of the system and we need your support to finish the development!
All the listed services and functions are built in a mobile app that can be installed on any modern smartphone. Each option can be activated separately.
1. Prevention. A GSM-GPS tracking service that allows parents to find out where the child is and to know his smaptphone battery charge at any moment of time.
2.Response. An alarm button that when pressed or activated by voice forwards the call to the nearest police station and sends emergency signals with location data to friends, relatives and the 24-hour hotline of the Association.The app also includes interactive first aid and emergency reference book.
3. Broadcasting. A mobile app broadcasting service with various feedback options. It sends interactive missing bulletins to all the app users thus informing volunteers and civilians about missing children and giving them the opportunity to report back any known information. The concept is to certain extent similar to AMBER alert and the latest Facebook update released by NCMEC. There are no such services in Russia right now.
4. Search. A social network to unite and coordinate volunteers from our Association and all the partner organizations as well as individual volunteers and civilians. The main aim will be to organize and coordinate simultaneous searches which will be supported with such functions as multi-leveled access to the information, division of volunteers into search groups, event organizer etc. The distinctive feature of the network will be the tactical mode. When switched on during an active search mission it turns a smartphone into a tracking device that sends geo data to coordinator’s laptop where it is visualized on the interactive map. Combining this system with the use of radio sets will greatly facilitate the searches and ensure the full control over the coordination of the search missions.
