On 20 December 2021, our director Rhiana Spring was interviewed (in German) by the popular national newspaper 20 Minuten, which is read by 3 Million readers daily. She talked about our chabot Sophia, how it works and why it’s so important in the fight against domestic violence. 20 Minuten published the interview on their website and printed a half-paged article on page 4. Watch the interview below.

Sophia is now available in 222 countries – with a current in-depth focus on Switzerland – helping survivors of domestic violence gather potential evidence and seek help. It’s as easy as chatting to a friend: Search for “Sophia Chatbot” on Telegram (Whatsapp and Signal coming soon) or type “” in your browser and start chatting. Available 24/7, anonymously, and without leaving a digital trace
