Kwanele Chat Bot

Leonora Tima of Kwanele - Bringing Women Justice in South Africa will develop a mobile application and chatbot to provide understandable legal information on gender-based violence (GBV) to vulnerable groups, including high school learners, young women, survivors of GBV, members of the LGBTQIA+ community and sex workers. South Africa faces disproportionately high rates of GBV but lacks access to justice and understandable legal information for survivors. They will integrate GPT4 and OpenAI's Large Language Model (LLM) with front-end applications, such as WhatsApp and Facebook, to guide users through the complex judicial system using everyday language. They will run community training and onboarding events to demonstrate the technology and introduce people to the application and they will run focus groups, workshops and interviews to support the design of the tool and build the datasets.
