SAFER INTERNET DAY
Safer Internet Day (SID) is a worldwide event that raises awareness about online safety and encourages everyone to help create a better internet. SID is an event celebrated on the second day, second week, and the second month of every year. The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and It calls upon young internet users to join together in helping to create a better internet.
PPDC joined this global event in 2015 with support from Google and Partner to help promote online safety and responsible use of the internet for young internet users and provide guidance for parents, teachers, and policymakers in playing their part for a better internet.
We have successfully celebrated SID three consecutive times in Lagos. However, since 2018 to date, PPDC has celebrated SID in selected schools across the 36 states of the federation, including FCT Abuja. These have aided in widening our scope to reach all states in Nigeria.
