Who we are

Digital Inclusion and Safer Internet (DISI) seeks to promote universal access to ICTs for sustained individual and economic development; and for full participation in society in a way that preserves the safety and freedom of the internet.

Online Safety Curriculum

 With support from Google, we partnered with the Nigeria Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC), the agency responsible for curriculum development in Nigeria to develop and infuse online safety into the Nigeria National curricula. The four stages of development for the standalone curriculum, Teachers Guide and Infusion into carrier subjects were successfully completed. In November 2019, the Online Safety Curriculum was finally approved by the National Council on Education (NCE) during the 64th NCE meeting held in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Meet our Webrangers

Being a webranger played an important part in helping me cultivate healthy online habits in my teenage years. As a young adult, I still carry those lessons with me and they inform the decisions I make with regards to information sharing, social media use, and protection of privacy.

The Webranger program has, in many ways, opened me up to the realities of the world around us. It has shown me the vices that go on in the online domain and has as well taught me how to curb these vices in my own little way. I’ve been able to learn about diverse cultures and have a lot of fun along the way.

Digital Inclusion

Access to information has proven to be pertinent and equitable, as online communication is a viable mode of sharing vital information in society and especially in the 21st century and beyond. Our digital inclusion strategy seeks to bridge the digital literacy gap that currently exists among the underrepresented group and acknowledging that this can take various forms depending on our target audience, their demography, and needs per time. For this reason, our first targets would be the youth and the girl-child.
