Telenor commits to providing a safer internet for children

To highlight the importance of online safety for children and reinforce its commitment towards creating a safer digital future for generations to come, Telenor Pakistan celebrated “Safer Internet Day” at its 345 Campus in Islamabad. The event was marked with the launch of a special episode of Burka Avenger and attended by industry experts, academia and students.

In the last five years alone, Telenor Pakistan has been working towards building the capacity of children in Pakistan around safe use of the internet in partnership with Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi. Through Telenor’s Safe Internet Program, they have upskilled over one million children in the country and over five million across Europe and Asia.

Last year, the telecom operator partnered with UNICEF to upskill another 750,000 children, parents, and educators across Pakistan around Child Online Protection and to influence policy and regulatory reform in the next three years.

“Technology and digital applications provide significant opportunities to keep children and young people learning, entertained, and connected. However, it also increases their exposure to a host of risks. Telenor Pakistan will continue promoting digital inclusion, online safety, and new skillset to help young people navigate a connected world.

However, online safety content is competing for youths’ attention in a world of social media and video games, and thinking innovatively to communicate our message is more important than ever. ” Irfan Wahab Khan, Chief Executive Officer Telenor Pakistan, said in his remarks.
