Responsible Use of Technology

With the end of the academic year, Honor 1000 recently concluded their Online Safety Campaign with elementary school students in the Philippines.

  

The team taught the kids not only how to protect themselves from the lurking dangers in the virtual world, but also how to be responsible with technology. The key learning points were how to protect themselves from cyber bullying, how to respond when they experience it, and how to promote respect and be responsible members of the online community.

The team is grateful with how receptive and involved the students were. The students are equally thankful for the lessons and information. One of the students shared, “As we cope with technology and use it every day, it is important that we are guided on how to be responsible and safe.” Because of the high prevalence of online child exploitation in the Philippines, cyber awareness programs like this, is vital for students and young people at risk of being exploited. When school starts again in August, this interactive and informative program will once again impact school children in the Philippines.

So far this year, 249 students across 5 primary schools have been part of this awareness program.

Safe Place for Two Sisters

The mother of these sisters works as a prostitute in the Philippines. When their mother started working at night time, she would usually ask one of her male friends to watch her kids. That man started abusing both girls repeatedly. Because of this, the two girls would usually sneak out of their house at night time and walk around the city.
