About our SID activities
For Safer Internet Day (SID) 2022, with the support of PLAN International Cambodia, World Childhood Foundation, and Bread for the World, APLE plans to celebrate the SID campaign and carry out activities, focusing on raising awareness of internet safety and promoting positive use of digital/ICT technologies among children, adolescents and youths.
Through this campaign, the following activities will be undertaken:
- Co-organise SID event with the National Committee for Counter Trafficking and other partners to raise awareness on the emerging trends of OCSE and call for public responses to keep children safe.
- Produce and disseminate IEC materials to inform the public of online risks and safety measures.
- Organise radio/TV talk shows before and after the SID event, featuring child online protection.
We aim to reach and engage with over 600 (in person) children, young people, NGOs, IOs, government officials, teachers, industry partners (Internet Service Providers/ISPs), and media to raise their awareness of online risks and safety measures as well as to promote public reporting and child online protection across Cambodia.
What we are doing to support the SID 2022 slogan of "Together for a better internet"...
APLE supports the SID 2022 with a slogan of "Together for a better internet".
APLE is a registered child protection NGO, established in 2003, dedicatedly working to strengthen national social and legal mechanisms for the protection of children at risk of or affected by child sexual abuse and exploitation.
With the support of the INHOPE Foundation, APLE created the internet hotline in 2015 for public reporting against child sexual abuse material online (CSAM), which is linked with law enforcement and other hotlines globally. The hotline provides a crucial link in the protective chain of interventions against child sexual abuse and exploitation, ensuring that the problem is investigated and, if found to be illegal, for the information to be sent to law enforcement.
For victims, APLE provides social, psychological and legal services, and facilitates referrals to long-term care, rehabilitation, and reintegration support, working in partnership with government and other NGO service providers.
