Rwanda Safer Internet Day Committee - Internet Society Rwanda Chapter

Last updated: 2022-01-27

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 are intended to 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 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.

Our theme for this year is "Protecting children's online reputation". 

What we are doing to support the SID 2022 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…

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

We are calling on everyone to get involved to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children, young and adult people.
 
We believe that 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

ISOC Rwanda Chapter was created to further the cause of achieving an open and free internet for everyone through building networks, promoting the internet for education, and training the next generation of internet engineers, entrepreneurs and leaders to inform policy and educate the public about internet-related issues in Rwanda.
