This could train 300 teachers and equip them with essential skills to provide vital online safety education. Connection and reliance on connectivity access to essential life opportunities such as education, civil participation and the job market is opening up unprecedented opportunities for children but also exposing them to new risks of harm, abuse and exploitation. Training teachers and equipping them with skills to provide online safety education will not only support their current students to engage with the online world safely but will benefit thousands of children over the course of their career, creating generational change.
