“Empowering Parents and Educators to Navigate Online Safety in the Digital Playground”

 

Parenting today isn’t a stroll in the park; it’s a digital adventure! Eveminet understands this, recognising that equipping ourselves with the right tools and knowledge is crucial in ensuring the safety and well-being of our children in this ever-evolving ecosystem.

???? Digital Playground: Where Online Safety Matters

As our children grow up in the internet era, their playground has extended into the digital realm, intertwining with their everyday lives. Eveminet steps in, focusing on Online Safety and Digital Well-being through initiatives like Whiz Kids Africa. Collaborations with tech giants like TikTok, Google, and Meta allow us to train on privacy features, community guidelines, and digital well-being programs.

Programs We Champion:

  • TikTok – Safer Together
  • Google – Online Safety 
  • Meta – Youth Wellbeing 

???? Reporting Mechanisms: A Path to Safety

In the face of cyber incidents, reporting is key. We’ve compiled a guide to various reporting mechanisms both within platforms and facilitated by the Government of Kenya.

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI):

Criminal Offenses: Report criminal incidents or activities to the DCI through their online reporting platform or by visiting their offices.

National Police Service (NPS):

Emergency Hotline: For urgent incidents, call the police hotline (999) to report crimes or emergencies.

When reporting incidents to government agencies, ensure you provide accurate details and information to facilitate their investigation or response. Additionally, some social media platforms have specific reporting guidelines for different types of incidents, including harassment, hate speech, violence, or fraud, so it’s advisable to refer to their respective help centers or support pages for detailed instructions on reporting specific issues.
