A Toolkit for Mobile App Development for Ending Violence Against Women

Building Mobile Apps to End Violence Against Women

A Refined Human Centered Design Toolkit


Overview This toolkit outlines a “refined” Human Centered Design (HCD) process, based on learning surfaced from the VXW Award Project. It suggests a series of basic steps for designing mobile applications to address a specific social cause or need, and features tips and considerations for applying these tools for apps to End Violence Against Women (EVAW), specifically.

The toolkit layout follows the HCD model promoted by IDEO.org and used widely across the social sector, which guides designers through the process of HEAR, CREATE and DELIVER. It also encourages an extra set of tips and examples to CONSIDER when tailoring the process to the unique sensitivities of EVAW.
