Child Online Africa, a child focused non-governmental organization has donated about 800 online safety booklets to Ghana Library Authority.
This forms parts of efforts to promote the awareness of online safety and privacy among children.
Presenting the booklets, the Executive Director of Child Online Africa Awo Aid Amenyah said, “we are in a technological age and children must be aware of dangers the internet can pose. We therefore deem it a duty to develop this safety material for children.”
The Executive Director (Ag.) of Ghana Library Authority Hayford Siaw who received the booklets noted, “Libraries are information hubs for all including children. We therefore welcome this initiative.” He added “the donation of these booklets is timely.
GIFEC is partnering us to introduce computers in all our libraries across the country. As such children would have access to these computers and have practical skills on how to be safe on the internet.”
The Accra Regional Librarian, Alikem Tamakloe was full of gratitude to Child Online Africa for their gesture and called on other corporate bodies to emulate such acts.
