From the Google Global Impact Challenge

We're excited to announce that Amnesty's in-development Panic Button App, which emerged from OpenIDEO, has gained a £100,000 award from Google. The Amnesty team pitched the project to a panel that included the inventor of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee, Richard Branson and more. The judges chose four Global Impact Awardees and also presented grants to an additional six finalists, which included Amnesty's Panic Button App submission.

The Amnesty team is planning to use the funding to start the next phase of rolling out plans for the app and testing it with regional activist networks. They'll be exploring a mobile system which supports cheaper, simpler handsets beyond smartphones. They also intend to work with activists and partners to develop a training curriculum the Panic Button app to increase the number of people globally who will be able to access and use the system safely.

Congrats to the Amnesty team on this exciting development in the pursuit of social impact – and to everyone who participated in our Amnesty Challenge who collaborated on this idea which is now transforming into impact. Stay tuned for more updates on the Panic Button App.
