Many women in the Gaza Strip face physical, sexual and psychological abuse. Violence against women is increasing exponentially as a result of the deteriorating living and economic conditions within families and the increase in poverty due to the Israeli siege imposed on Gaza and the lack of job opportunities.

With this abuse in mind, three young women working in software development created a user-friendly, confidential app called Our Spaces to provide psychological, legal and economic assistance to abused women.
