basixA GROUP of enterprising teenagers has used their business savvy to give back to the community.

The 17-year-old Gibraltarians, who call themselves Basix, have collaborated with the Ministry of Culture and the Royal Gibraltar Police to provide data of sexual abuse on their website.

They are also selling rape alarms to women and children to help stave off attack when they are out alone and encounter a potential abuser.

The alarms make a high-pitched sound when initiated, reaching up to 120 decibels. After being sold out almost immediately they have reordered, and have a long waiting list.

The group started by selling party bags, but after one month, decided that they wanted to focus on giving back to the community.
