Cambodia Safer Internet Day Committee - APLE (Internet Hotline Cambodia)
About our SID activities
For SID 2020, we are planning to run a number of public campaigns with school students, teachers, youth network and local authorities to raise awareness of online safety, increase attention towards protecting children online and lobby for a better child protective system.
APLE senior operational team members will approach selected government officials at national and subnational levels who have a key responsibility to protect children in order to raise awareness of the problem, seek support and collect their public statement which will be published on APLE social media.
APLE legal team will also meet with policy/law makers and judiciary to complement an understanding of the real problem and lobby for a better legislation to tackle Internet crime against children.
Last but not least, APLE community engagement team leader will join a TV talk show to speak about SID event and disseminate online safety tips to wider audiences.
APLE will make use of the SID event material with personalisation and start posting and promoting SID 2020 social media on its social media from 1 February 2020, where photos, comments, statements and safety tips are published to get an interest and initiate engagement with the upcoming event. On 11 February 2020, APLE will post updates and live action of the above mentioned activities.
What we are doing to support the SID 2020 slogan of "Together for a better internet"...
We aim to:
- Raise awareness and public attention towards Internet safety for children to use through education, training and campaigning such as SID.
- Improve the current child protective system.
- Lobby for a better legislation to tackle internet crime against children.
- Provide a secure, confidential and anonymous reporting hotline to report concern/suspicion of online child sexual exploitation.
Post-SID round up...
Internet Hotline Cambodia (IHC) was established in 2015 with the support of the INHOPE Foundation, dedicated to making online communities safer for children to use. Run by APLE, IHC is one of the globally connected hotlines, providing 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.
IHC offers a secure web-based hotline for the public to report child sexual abuse material (CSAM) anonymously and coordinates notice/takedown actions with law enforcement and other hotlines to have illegal content removed and the matter investigated.
IHC extensively works on awareness and educational campaigns focusing on raising a better awareness and understanding of online threats, safety measures and reporting of child sexual abuse material in order to empower children, parents/carers, professional and local communities with the right knowledge and strategies to stay safe and protect children from online issues.
