The bot is a medium that will encourage women to break their silence,” says Elsa Marie D’Silva, founder and CEO of Safe City.

D’Silva says that since the bot was launched in February, about 100 women from Maharashtra have used it to report sexual abuse.

Once women report an incident, it will be recorded on a crowd-sourced map, which is available on the Safe City website, he adds.

“Safe City, a non-government organization, has a website where women can write about such instances.

However, a bot makes the process easier as you can access it from your phone,” said Sodah whose 10% vision has not deterred him from working for the past five years.

This bot is just one of many that are arriving in Facebook's messenger app which were announced by Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook's annual F8 developer conference.

The chatbot, launched by dating service Match.com, asks people for personal details such as their age, where they live and their sexual orientation in a casual way- all in Facebook Messenger.
