African Children Cyber Safety Competition for children and Young People on World Information Society and Telecommunication Day -African Information Security Association (AISA) "Protecting Children and Young People Online" forum

Did you know over 75% of children online are willing to share personal information about themselves and their family? Children and young people need to use the Internet for growth and development. But the same ICT driven environment can be a source of worry and abuse." 

The African Information Security Association (AISA) organised the Protecting Children and Young People Online Forum on May 19, 2009 which focused on the theme of the WTISD 2009 with a view to promoting the adoption of policies and strategies that will protect children in cyberspace and promote their safe access to online resources. To accomplish this, AISA invited several sister NGOs, industry operators, educators and schools to participate in the forum.

Having considered various issues relating to the protection of children online, it was resolved during the forum that all concerned stakeholders should work in concert towards the establishment of an African Children Cyber Safety Initiative with a mandate to advance the cause of safe Internet culture for African children and young people.  BE PART OF THE AFRICAN CHILDREN CYBER SECURITY INITIATIVE!

Another great initiative from AISA. We need more of such forums. In fact the abuse of children online is becoming common in some cyber cafes where pornography is shown.

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.



Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.



You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.



But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.



"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.



Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.



GO on the offensive now with IT Education and Empowerment.



What is the use of ideas without action?



Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.
