ChildFund Swipe Safe, launched by ChildFund Australia in 2017, aims to prevent the online abuse and exploitation of children. It mobilizes parents, youth, schools and the private sector to play an active role in children’s online safety.
A key project of ChildFund’s WEB Safe & Wise campaign, Swipe Safe is working to enhance the skills and knowledge of young people so they can safely and effectively navigate the online environment.
While access and connectivity provide life opportunities to education, civil participation, and jobs, it also opens exposes children 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 lifetime, creating generational change.
