Over 50,000 children learned internet safety

DHAKA: Over 50,000 students in more than 240 schools across the country under a campaign has been made aware about internet safety to reap the maximum benefit from the virtual medium.

Mobile phone operator Grameenphone in partnership with BRAC carried out the campaign which was started from September this year, said a press release today.

As part of the campaign, a session on internet safety was organised at Sir John Wilson School yesterday, where Grameenphone CEO Michael Patrick Foley, Principal of the School Sabrina Shahed, Grameenphone Chief Corporate Affairs Officer Mahmud Hossain and Head of Sustainability of Grameenphone Rasna Hasan were present.

Michael Patrick Foley said, “We are trying to aware school children around the country to learn the skills to be safe on the Internet and use it responsibly.”

In Bangladesh, a survey conducted by Telenor on secondary students who have internet connections have found that half are likely to encounter cyber-bullying or unsafe online situations. But, any of such unpleasant experience can easily be avoided with few simple preventive measures and common sense.

The Child Online Safety programme has been designed to mainly raise
awareness amongst school children, on how to use internet securely with few simple guidelines. Before this year’s programme, Grameenphone reached 80,000 children in 500 schools across Bangladesh with BRAC through activations in schools and distribution of guidebooks on the safe and responsible use of the internet.

“As a school, it is our responsibility to protect and guide our students which only can happen through dialogues, and we have been talking about internet safety for some time now with parents,” said Sabrina Shahed.
