Kottarakkara: The Student Police Cadet and UNICEF are joining hands to conduct a project called ‘D-Safe’ aimed at ensuring the safety of children in the cyber world. The first phase of the project for parents has been completed in Kollam district. A total of 1000 parents attended the three-days-training programme. In the first phase, the target is to train around one lakh teachers and parents across the state.
The plan was devised by the police to keep the children safe from the dangers posed by the cyber world. Notably, this is the first international and national cyber security project in Kerala with the assistance of UNICEF.
With the advent of online classes, digital devices have become an indispensable part of everyone's life. Due to the lack of awareness, the parents are also unable to monitor their children. In order to tackle the issue, Project-D was introduced to provide classes of digital experts to parents.
The project provides parents with technical insights on how digital devices can be used by children. Further, the project also looks into the cyber issues, its psychological impact on children and their legal aspects.
