Digital Inclusion and Safer Internet (DISI) is a core program of the Public and Private Development Centre (PPDC) that 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. DISI also seeks to preserve internet freedom by encouraging and institutionalizing safer internet practices; through self-regulation and consideration for other people online. DISI emerged from our realization that the internet provides a level playing field for participatory governance and economic opportunities across industries; thus the need for universal access. Recognizing the amorality of the internet, DISI also seeks to preserve internet freedom by encouraging and institutionalizing safer internet practices; through self-regulation and consideration for other people online.
