How do we help

The base of all of our activities is the website and mobile app. They both work as a virtual anonymous reporting platform. We also work with influencers whose videos and posts about bullying have reached millions of learners, parents and teachers.

We work with many organisations that focus on preventing or dealing with bullying and help schools with prevention through sharing leaflets, posters and other materials. We're also active in lobbying for the support of school psychologists, counsellors and other professionals.

We discuss the problems of bullying in the media and often interview the victims of bullying. Through our social media channels, we regularly reach thousands of followers through our messages about the prevalence of bullying.
