Palestine Safer Internet Day Committee
World Vision Jerusalem-West Bank-Gaza through their West Ramallah Area Development Programme launched the Keeping Children Safe Online (KCSO) Project in June 2011. This project works to provide children, youth, and adults with skills to better protect themselves and others while online and promote the safer use of the internet. For KCSO and Safer Internet Day (SID), World Vision works in partnership with the Palestinian Ministry of Social Affairs, the Palestinian Ministry of Education, the Palestinian High Judicial Council, the Family Protection and Cyber Crimes Units of the Palestinian Police, Save the Children UK (Palestine Office), Defense for Children International (Palestine Office), the Palestinian Telecommunication Group (PALTEL) and SAWA.
World Vision currently has 44,516 registered children, of which 35,492 are sponsored, and continues to work in Jerusalem, West Bank, and Gaza towards ensuring that all children are cared for, protected, and participating in their communities.
Safer Internet Day 2014
Keeping Children Safe Online (KCSO) Implemented by World Vision Jerusalem- West Bank- Gaza is celebrating the Safer Internet Day of 2014 through the following activities:
We have opened a competition for KCSO TOT children to submit a suggestion for a giveaway item that promotes for online safety for children. We invited each KCSO village to apply separately. The winning team will receive a prize. Moreover, their suggested giveaway item will be printed (mentioning their names as designers if possible) and distributed to all KCSO villages.
We will also do Facebook banners all through February. We will also be doing radio campaigns with interviews with children.
