engage and empower young digital citizens
Children born this century are growing up in a completely digital world. This impacts on the way children and young people view their world, access information and services, gain knowledge, form opinions and participate in things that matter to them. Digital access doesn’t automatically translate to digital literacy and digital empowerment. All children and young people in SA should be able to engage with the digital world, access its benefits equally, be digitally included and have their rights protected.
Children, young people and their families are better equipped to understand the digital world, and feel empowered to access its benefits and manage its risks.
- Supporting children and parents to understand digital identity and rights.
- Showcasing the positive impact of online activities on individuals and community.
- Empowering children and young people through their digital skills and capabilities.
