Our founders Jan, David, and Pavel witnessed bullying at primary school. As bystanders, they felt terrible about the situation but were afraid to speak up. At 17 years old, they created a web and mobile app to help others who find themselves in similar situations. Children can anonymously report bullying or anything they or a peer is struggling with directly to their school’s trusted teachers.
During the 4 years since its launch, 1 800 schools have signed up, and we’ve received 8,000 reports of bullying, cyberbullying, extortion, self-harm, physical violence, and other challenges that either they or their peers encounter daily.
In 2020, companies and other organizations started to reach out, saying that they would also welcome a similar platform to help with compliance, whistleblowing as well as creating a safe corporate culture. That’s when we added different features to fit in the corporate environment. Thousands of organizations are now using FaceUp on four continents.
We believe that having the strength to speak up starts during childhood. That's why we want to continue our mission that led us to create the platform: to spread awareness among children and schools and help fight bullying.
That’s why our commercial activities contribute to our Endowment Fund’s operation, which is dedicated to education and prevention. We teach children not to be indifferent about their surroundings and to speak up against bullying. Similarly, we also try to contribute to the fight against domestic violence and suicide by joining forces with Intervention Centres that help people in these difficult situations.
Our awareness campaigns reach hundreds of thousands of children and we have seen the results. In the first 4 years, we received 8,000 reports from children from all over the world.
