Information about the project
Hamara Internet
In the absence of any laws to tackle cyber harassment, Nighat Dad, digital rights advocate, created Hamara Internet (Our Internet), a pioneer project to raise the awareness of digital violence against women. The project, funded by Internet Society’s Beyond the Net, is opening a new chapter in the struggle for women’s rights in Pakistan, providing women with the necessary knowledge and tools to protect their freedom of expression: trainings, workshops in Universities, legal and psychological support and a Crisis Center. Pakistani women deserve to be free of using the Internet to improve education and contribute to the economic growth.
