Colombia Safer Internet Day Committee - Red Papaz

Last updated: 2024-01-26

About our SID activities

Viguías is participating in the Safer Internet Day by joining the Power of Zero campaign. The campaign aims to educate families on the importance of the moment they give their child their first device. The campaign sparks open communication about online safety and using technology responsibly through animated videos and a digital parenting toolkit, empowering parents to instil good cyber habits and values, respect and kindness from the moment they give their children their phone or tablet. 

What we are doing to create a better internet…

Viguías is dedicated to creating a secure digital environment for children in Colombia and Latin America. Our diverse programmes and projects are designed to enhance the capabilities of parents, caregivers, and other stakeholders, fostering a collective effort to safeguard children's digital well-being. Collaborating with a vast network comprising over 800,000 parents and caregivers, we advocate for protecting children and adolescents' digital rights in our country.

We have the helpline "Te Protejo" for reporting violations of children's and adolescents's rights, The network of youth initiatives "Tú Lideras"; and the helpline "Te Guío" for guidance on harmful sexual behaviour among minors.
