PPa ( Protection People app), the biometric recognition app to protect the most vulnerable people
PPa (Protection People app) it´s a technological tool, consisting of a multifactor biometric identification system and data processing, which operates both mobility and desk, facilitating and making the social intervention more efficient allowing the collection of key each invidual data from the person and especially, identification with high reliability.
MAIN TARGETS: NGOs
Vulnerable groups that require identification, protection and monitoring of their needs by social workers and government institutions.
* Minors unaccompanied
* Medical histories
* Potential victims of trafficking: prevention of trafficking following natural disasters and / or war, conflict fleeing violence.
Child PPa is the first project in which we will apply PPa. Starting February 2017, in India as a first. The “Street Children” are a collective of more than a hundred million children aged between 5 and 18 years, living alone, without any family or social protection in extreme conditions. Due to their extremely vulnerable condition, are liable to be used by trafficking maffias.
SECTOR OF ACTIVITY
The pilot experience, scalable to other countries, will take place in 81 locations in India.
Child PPa is the first of the projects in which we will apply PPa. From April 2017 in India, with “Street Children “, a group of more than ONE HUNDRED MILLION MINORS, between 5 and 17 years. They live alone, without any family or social protection, in very extreme conditions. Because of their vulnerable nature, they are at risk of being used by trafficking mafias. In all these cases, the great difficulty of preventing these children from being caught is that they lack any documentation that proves their identity, which in addition leaves them outside the health or educational assistance networks.
DESCRIPTION AND TECHNOLOGICAL CONTENT
Application of new technologies to improve relevant social problems, which will generate an action framework based on reliable data and on its automation and use.
Child PPa enables reliable identification and data collection of street children, for follow-ups and subsequent social, health and educational interventions by social workers with some specific purposes like:
Physical rehabilitation: Besides treating serious and common diseases like HIV, Hepatitis, severe fractures, malnutrition, or addiction, we provide the child with anything they need (such as vaccines or glasses).
Mental and emotional rehabilitation: Psychological support and treatment (for depression and severe trauma). The aim is to stabilise them and have them agree to go to a centre. There they can regain trust in themselves as well as in the people that wish to help.
Against the dangers they face: violence, abuse, exploitation (labor, sexual, victims of organ and drug trafficking), addiction, serious diseases, malnutrition.
And protection against the consequences derived from the life which leads them to begging, illiteracy, delinquency and disease.
Education and formation.
Counselling and vocational training.
Help in job search.
Each social worker can use PPa from a mobile or fixed device, allowing him to capture three biometric patterns of the person (finger, palmar and facial) and collect their key data (gender, name, nationality, age, concrete problem ).
All this will be transmitted online “to the BBDD of each NGO user of the System, to improve the intervention and social assistance.

This project is currently under development. Due to its complexity, it has been carried out in several phases throughout 2016 and will end in the first quarter of 2017.
