Setto is a digital safe space helping young BAME settlers in London overcome the barrier of making friends in a new place while giving them a sense of belonging. As students from BAME backgrounds, we know it can be difficult to make friends when there is a language barrier or people judging based on appearance. Our app facilitates genuine friendships built through commonalities and conversations. We believe this would empower them to step out of their comfort zone to meet others who can relate to them and sustain a more positive relationship towards their health and companionship.
