Cyber Privacy , Safety & Security Handbook

The INTERNET  is the most benefiting invention of the society known to us.
The openness and world wide connectivity also has made internet a dangerous if you aren’t aware of safety on internet. According to our popular belief; most vulnerable are the young girls.

This handbook compiled by Shilpa Sayura Foundation Youth with the funding of ISOC (Internet Society) for the Respect Girls on Internet Project. Please use, share and comment freely.

Respect Girls on Internet

Community Based Cyber Harassment Protection.

Respect Girls on Internet initiative address Harassment of teenage girls on social networks – including extreme cases of self-harm - is a growing problem in Sri Lanka due to an increase in their use among teenagers. In most cases young people are withdrawing from social life and digital society; the physical and/or psychological victimization affects their education and employment. Although national laws and procedures are in place for protection, there is a general lack of awareness, advice and resources available – in the local language - for victims to seek justice. Respec Girls project creates digital content in the local language to raise awareness about the problem, advocate for safe and respectful online discourse, promote empathy and develops a network of youth for preventing Cyber Harassment and supporting victims.

One output was Cyber Privacy eHandbook for those new to the Internet, as well as for teachers and parents. A group of young people were trained to create online apps, short films, digital posters, stories, and comics to encourage peer-to-peer awareness. This online network has expanded to the real world with short film exhibitions and awareness raising exercises in schools.
