Our Response

EHEM - is a Filipino expression of “excuse me.” “oops teka lang.” Second look, think before you post. Inspired this app as a virtual reminder to the would be cyberbully.

First priority is to build up the bystanders and convert them into a pro-active community that will stand between the gap of the bully and the victim. Empower them by tie-up with existing modules from different websites, have the community undergo these modules, training, and seminars before they can do counseling for the victim and/or the bully. Location of a nearby counsellor for a bully or a victim.

Secondly, stop the bully before the cyberbullying happens, with a web-app, or a plug-in to Chrome, the bully will be prompted for a negative text or image that he is about to post. 

Thirdly, assist the victim in seeking help, partner with a counsellor, as the victim goes through difficult time. A person who will listen is just a click away.

Fourthly, massive campaign against cyberbullies through blogs, wordpress is good in search engine optimization.
