Survivors who have faced violence either don’t know where to go for help, or don’t have resources to find out where to go for help. Sometimes, their situation prevents them from finding help, and that can be extremely dangerous to their safety. The name Saahas, in Hindi, translates to mean “Courage.” The app recognizes that a survivor’s choice to stand up to violence and a bystander’s choice to intervene in a case of violence is an act of courage.

Saahas was created as a mobile app with the help and support of World Pulse. Kirthi was selected as part of the first cohort of the Impact Leader Program, and received an award and mentorship support with which she built the mobile app. World Pulse was founded by Jensine Larsen. Based out of Portland, Oregon, World Pulse is a growing social network connecting over 53,000 people from 190 countries who are impacting more than 3.1 million lives and creating a world where all women thrive.
