    Awareness Raising and Capacity Building


    The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), in collaboration with civil society organizations, the private sector and other governmental institutions, aims to raise awareness of the significance of Internet Safety and digital citizenship within the framework of the National Committee on Child Online Protection.

    Two working groups were established in seven governorates, strategically located in order to cover different social classes, representing rural and urban areas. The two groups are:

    Youth Internet Safety Working Group
    by holding around 700 awareness seminars, the group was able to reach about 63,000 young people in the seven governorates during the period from October 2009 (the starting date of the group) until the end of 2010.

    Parents Internet Safety Working Group
    The group works on raising parentsí awareness about defining the culture of Internet safety to enable them to keep pace with the modern technology used by their children, and how to guide and protect them. By conducting 500 awareness seminars, the group was able to reach approximately 38,000 parents in the seven governorates during the period from October 2009 (the starting date of the group) until the end of 2010. The National Committee on Child Online Protection works on re-structuring this group in cooperation with the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood (NCCM).

    The two Working Groups followed the peer-to-peer mechanism and worked with two types of NGOs in each governorate: a main NGO and a partner NGOs, where the main group selects and trains five NGOs, and each one of them trains five others on the agreed upon awareness program. The Training of Trainers (ToT) and monthly seminars are also powerful tools, in addition to the meticulous selection of the core groups that is undertaken through careful interviews. This raises the number of trainers, helps in scaling up efforts and in mainstreaming Internet safety within the work of NGOs.
