Skool Media, the pioneers and the leading brand in EduTech met with the commissioner of Police Lagos state, Edgal Imohimi on 7th March 2018, to showcase their newly developed security app, called the’Safe App’. This digital company, dedicated in its pursuit of revolutionalizing education in Nigeria, is branching out into the sphere of security for students.
To keep students safe at all times, they developed the ‘Safe App’, this application is the first of its kind and school children are required to download it on their phones and it does not need internet or call credit to function.
When in any danger, all a child with this app has to do, is click the ‘Safe App’ icon and automatically school authorities and security operatives are notified, while divulging the location of the child in distress.
This is a way the Edutech company is giving back to the society, while also combatting the matter of violence against children, kidnapping and several forms of child abuse.
The commissioner of Police in Lagos state, Edgal Imohimi, welcomed the idea and made it known that it was in line with his own brand of police work, which is community policing.
