Initiative Description

Yunga is a local rescue digital network that connects neighbor to neighbor and neighbor to police in case of an attack or emergency.It connects your home to reliable rapid response unit in case the matter escalates. By a tap of a button from a Yunga device, all your neighbours and police will be notified and called to your rescue instantly. Our story of providing low cost security tools to communities began in November 2018. Back then the Yunga device was a tool working only in one community “Ntinda-Kigowa ” Kampala, Uganda. Today, we are privileged to protect 1,500 lives in three areas around Kampala (Kigowa Ntinda, Kiwatule and Kabulengwa Nansana) using our low cost tools (Yunga device) as well as reaching over 700,000 people through our law and enforcement education.

Developed in collaboration with United Nations agencies, civil society and other organizations
