9-year-old Shillong girl felicitated by HRD minister for anti-bullying app

Union Human Resources Development Minister RP Nishank on February 14 presented a special appreciation certificate and memento to Meaidaibahun Majaw, a Class IV student from Shillong who has recently developed an ‘anti-bullying’ app.

Nine-year-old Majaw developed the ‘Anti-Bullying App’ which will help children report cases of bullying anonymously and at the same time alert their parents and teachers.

She created the app after she herself was subjected to bullying by other students.

Majaw’s father enrolled her into a coding class at WhiteHat Jr as she wanted to create her own game. However, seeing herself and her sister getting bullied by others in school, she decided to create the application.

The app can be downloaded from Google Play.

The Union minister was in Shillong to launch the Incubation Programme at North Eastern Hill University ( NEHU) and inaugurated Agri Business Clinic.
