Challenge

School children are exposed to the internet from a young age and access to smart devices is becoming easier and more affordable. These have created serious safety concerns for parents, educators, public health officials, and the media over the past decade. A study in Nigeria has found that while nine out of 10 teenagers have access to the internet and three out of four have made friends with strangers online, there remains a very low level of digital literacy and awareness on online safety.

Solution

Your contribution to our "Digital access and safety Project" aims to increase awareness and knowledge on how to be safe online (safeguarding identity and addressing bullying or harassment online). It will also improve how to filter/verify internet contents and experiences which these technologies exposes children to, and also aims to increase the general digital literacy levels by enhancing practical digital skills.

Long-Term Impact

TechQuest through the "Digital access and safety Project will upskill 500 young people and help them be safe and responsible while online. Over the past few years, through community engagements, TechQuest has been able to organize over 1800 training, impacted over 32,000 young people, trained over 800 educators and engaged more than 245 schools in 16 of the 36 states in Nigeria. At TechQuest, we believe every African child and young adult should be digitally literate and have digital skills.
