Arigatou International is committed to raising awareness about child safety online which has become a larger threat in light of the COVID-19 pandemic with so many millions of children out of school and spending more hours navigating on the digital world.
During 2020, we have put a lot of effort into raising awareness about the risks children and young people can face online and the importance of making smart choices to keep themselves and others safe.
WEBINAR: Safeguarding Children’s Dignity Online During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Arigatou International organized a webinar to provide a platform for discussion between experts and children on the current threats and challenges children are facing in the context of COVID-19 while they navigate in the digital world. It also included recommendations for religious communities and civil society to take action towards online safety for children.
