DAdvocate taps on the study of social design to curtail complex societal issues such as domestic violence (DV) during the pandemic. The increased cases have overwhelmed the government and social workers. Also, men are usually the perpetrators in DV cases. DAdvocate is designed to promote public discourse and raise awareness on DV in Singapore. It is targeted at fathers aged 25 to 45 years old to take on the activist role in advocating against DV with the application of community activism. The internet-saavy fathers will be able to inform, share their experiences and advise fellow fathers.
