ROMANIA Safer Internet Centre
The overall objective of the Saferinternet RO project, sigur.info, is to promote Internet safety for children by establishing a Romanian combined Node consisting of a Hotline, a Helpline and awareness activities. Beside this, the project aims to provide teachers, parents and child protection specialists with knowledge and tools for protecting their children in the new technological environment. The node that is developing this project in Romania is created by a Consortium comprising two non-governmental organizations and one company with extensive expertise in areas directly connected to children’s rights, to child protection and to the current technologies which might call for special preventive measures.
Save the Children Romania (as program’s CO) has been developing, ever since 1990, social and educational programs for all children, child rights monitoring activities, paying special attention to children in difficulty.
