Laaha, a Virtual Safe Space for women and girls

UNICEF's Laaha platform is a groundbreaking virtual safe space designed specifically to empower women and girls facing humanitarian crises. Launched in response to a commitment made during the Generation Equality Forum in 2021, Laaha represents a collaborative effort between UNICEF, USAID, the Government of Finland, and the Open Society Foundation (OSF). Through Laaha, UNICEF has pioneered strategies to bridge the gender digital divide, ensuring equitable access to vital resources and support for women and girls in crisis situations. Moreover, Laaha has been instrumental in addressing Technology-Facilitated Gender-Based Violence (TFGBV) by implementing robust safety measures, fostering digital literacy, and providing a secure platform for communication and support. Laaha's development journey included a co-creation process with affected communities through human-centered design.
