THE STORY:

AMOUNT RAISED IN PREVIOUS ROUNDS: $1490

Stay in Touch, a CGI University Commitment to Action, is a texting service that enables disaster victims and their families ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD to establish a connection using ANY MOBILE PHONE. Each potential disaster victim will create a unique account on the automated response system, which they can check in to by texting "username#" and answering their three security questions. If they have checked in, their loved ones can identify if they are okay by texting in their loved one's username. This results in an auto text being sent to the searcher, which provides the time of the lost party’s last check in, any unique message the party has left, and provides the searcher with the invaluable knowledge their loved one is okay.

Currently all systems/apps/websites for locating lost loved ones require an internet connection, but in the developing world this is not feasible. Cell phone access has become incredibly wide spread, but internet access is far behind. This service uses booming cell phone penetrance, instead of relying on the incorrect assumption that most people have access to the internet. Stay in Touch finally brings an organized solution to the complex problem of locating missing persons.
