Unlimited in partnership with ChildSafeNet (www.childsafenet.org) is organizing Cyber Safety Training on August 22, 2018 at its Auditorium in the Unlimited Building, Khichapokhari, New Road.
ChildSafeNet works with children, young people, parents, schools, government, media, private sector and organizations to protect children and young people online.
In this digital age, information and communication technology sector is advancing tremendously. Along with the fast progress, this revolution brings with it numerous adversities and dangers. Children and young people are heavy users of the technology. Unsafe use of the digital technology exposes them to serious harms, such as, online sexual abuse & exploitation, cyber bullying, phishing and sextortion. Such harms affect children’s mental and cognitive development, humiliate and lower their self-esteem. Children, young people, parents, teachers and governments need to take cyber safety seriously and fulfill their responsibilities in making the internet safer place.
