With support from the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development, The Asia Foundation‘s VXW Award gives activists exclusive access to world class quality design, facilitation, and developer support to build, use and scale mobile technology solutions to end violence against women in Cambodia.

The VXW Award is inspired by the belief that greater innovation is needed for the development of new and locally appropriate mobile apps for EVAW, as well as for the process used to design them. Recognizing the importance of promoting local ownership and designing for the needs of end users, the VXW Award supported local activists to drive the design of mobile apps to support their work and/or the communities they serve. The process leveraged Human-Centered Design (HCD) methods to facilitate the design process, and surfaced valuable learnings about the product, process, and project alike.

The Asia Foundation supports the innovative project that uses mobile technology to end violence against women (EVAW). The Foundation has launched this platform to provide tools and resources for mobile app development, specifically for EVAW, as well as valuable lessons learnt from the project that we hope to share among activists, community leaders and development community.
