Child Online Africa donates books to Library Authority as part of Safer Internet Day

Child Online Africa, a non-governmental organisation which focuses on creating awareness towards a safe internet for children has donated some books to the Ghana Library Authority.

The donation which commemorates this year’s Safer Internet Day aims at promoting vigilance particularly among young people to become conscious of their own safety and security with regards to the internet.

This year's celebration was themed ‘Together for a better Internet’ the books focuses on developing ‘critical’ skills of Respect, Responsibility, Reasoning and Resailiance (the 4Rs) required for navigating the online world.

Executive Director for Child Online Africa, Awo Amenyah observed that a nation needs well-informed future citizens who can successfully make use of the internet and therefore believes there’s no better place than the library to help pursue such course.

“We thought it wise to make some of these books available to the Ghana Library Authority for them to keep for children and some parents can also lean some one or two things from it” she mentioned.

Madam Amenyah also indicated, the borderless nature of the internet requires educating young people in order for them to handle it responsibly.
