FaceUp is a startup created by high school learners in collaboration with major experts. We fight aginst bullying, sexual assault, group exclusion and other social issues at schools around the world.
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.
Our team does their best to turn each South African into an everyday heroes. Bullying is not just a problem of primary or high school. We're currently working on a version designed for companies and sports clubs. If you want to find out more, email firstname.lastname@example.org
FaceUp emerged from a students' initiative and we worked in close cooperation with teachers, school counsellors and organisations that served as external advisors.
