Rwanda Safer Internet Day Committee - Internet Society Rwanda Chapter

Last updated: 2024-01-08

About our SID activities

The Internet Society engages in a wide spectrum of internet issues, including policy, governance, technology, and development. We establish and promote principles that empower everyone to use technology responsibly, respectfully, critically, and creatively. Everything we do is based on ensuring that a healthy, sustainable internet is available to everyone – today and tomorrow.

We are building and promoting internet for education.
We are training the next generations of internet engineers, entrepreneurs and leaders.
We are advocating for the internet.

Every year, ISOC Rwanda Chapter organises celebrations of Safer Internet Day (SID) in Rwanda to inform the public about risks associated with the use of technology, build the needed capacity in every member of the community to use the internet responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively, and calls on everyone to play an active role in making the internet a better place for children to learn and innovate.


What we are doing to create a better internet 

We all have the power to help make the internet a more welcoming, accessible and secure place for everyone.

This year, we will engage schools in awareness campaign activities to promote the safe, responsible, and positive use of digital technology for children, young people, and adults.

We believe the internet will be a safe place for everyone if young generations, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, lawyers, civil society and policymakers join together to create a better internet.

About us

The Internet Society supports and promotes the development of the Internet as a global technical infrastructure, a resource to enrich people’s lives, and a force for good in society.

Our work aligns with our goals for the Internet to be open, globally-connected, secure, and trustworthy. We seek collaboration with all who share these goals.

Together, we focus on:

  • Building and supporting the communities that make the Internet work;
  • Advancing the development and application of Internet infrastructure, technologies, and open standards; and
  • Advocating for policy that is consistent with our view of the Internet
