Tanzania Safer Internet Day Committee - Computing and Information Association (CIA)
About our SID activities
Tanzania Safer Internet Day (SID) intends to involve more schools, organisations and companies in celebrating SID 2020 by embracing the best practice from the Irish Safer Internet Centre (SIC) in celebrating SID 2019.
Students from schools gathered for the Safer Internet Day (SID) Ambassador Training to learn new skills and ideas for running their own internet safety campaign in their school, clubs or organisations and communities. SID Ambassadors will be trained to explore more ideas and plan their Safer internet Day 2020 events. These plans will hopefully be brought back to their schools and they will share their event stories to the world.
The target is to have more than 50 SID events in schools, organisations and companies which will involve more than 5,000 people and the general public by reaching out to key stakeholders not limited to:
- 50 schools in Dar es Salaam.
- 5 civil organisations - youth, legal, child protection organisations, etc.
- 5 tech companies - telecom companies, online platforms, etc.
- Media companies - TV and radio, and print media.
What we are doing to support the SID 2020 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…
- Creating local content for online discussions on how and why everybody must play part in creating a better internet.
- Hands-on activities for school students on how they will play their part for better internet.
