SAFE Internet and School Outreach Program

Safe Internet & School Outreach Program

By virtue of being a responsible digital service provider, Telenor Pakistan is a strong proponent of the fact that our users be equipped not just with the means to access the Internet, but with the right information and support system to be able to navigate this new world safely. The Safe Internet Program is designed to empower girls and boys to use Information Communication Technology (ICT) and the Internet responsibly in a safe manner. It promotes responsible and safe on-line behavior of children through building their capacity in self-protection online through play based interactive awareness sessions and modules. It also enhances the capacity of project staff, teachers, School Management Council members and students on child protection via workshops and engagements. Telenor Pakistan engages with broader stakeholders including relevant government departments, civil society and media to sensitize them on the importance and effective use of online safety guidelines.

The program covers two major areas:

  • School outreach & awareness
  • Preventing the spread of Child Sexual abuse material

Status:

Building on the success of Telenor’s School Rehab & Improvement Project, which provided physical infrastructure to schools destroyed by floods, Safe Internet Program was launched in the newly rehabilitated schools to provide virtual access and awareness on safe internet usage through “Safe Internet Parents Guide.” Puppet shows and role plays were also part of the awareness sessions. The program will reach approximately 17,000 children and elementary School teachers in 4 Districts in Punjab, Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) in collaboration with our implementation partner, Plan International Inc. (Pakistan office), over a period of 12 months starting from September, 2016 to August, 2017. Embedding the Safe Internet theme within i-champ, Telenor volunteer program “humqadam” and Customer First Day Telenor have been able to reach 355,664 students.
