Information about the project
Digital KID
Protecting children from the risks of the virtual world has become a multilateral responsibility. However, the parents assume the greatest part of such responsibility in raising the awareness of children about the optimum use of the internet. Children are now exposed to molestation and invasion of privacy and the provision of awareness programs will reduce potential risks. Based on this, the #digital_kid initiative will contribute in promoting electronic culture and knowledge on the risks of using the internet and how to avoid them. In addition, it will serve to raise awareness on the importance of building children’s capacities in the electronic field and boosting the skills of scientific research, discovery, and self-learning with the objective of eliminating the drain of brain power and resources in technology and qualifying and preparing future generations to contribute in the technology industry and master the art of technology.
