(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Vodafone #Qatar yesterday launched AmanTECH, company's aid programme for online child and youth safety. AmanTECH, which stands for "Safe Technology", aims at promoting digital literacy amongst parents and improving children's digital safety. It helps to raise parents' and children's awareness about safe internet use and their digital rights.

AmanTECH's launch brought together a prestigious line-up of speakers including Aysha Al Mudehki, Executive Director of Injaz #Qatar and Founder of Roudha Centre, Dr. Raymond Hamden, Clinical and Forensic Psychologist and Ian Campbell, Chief Executive Officer of Airtel-Vodafone in a panel moderated by Dana Haidan, Head of Coporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability at Vodafone Qatar.


In its first year, AmanTECH will reach out to 50,000 students aged between 5 to 17; 15,000 teachers; and 25,000 parents. The programme will adopt a three-pronged approach with a focus on awareness, education and technical support. This will entail a number of awareness campaigns during 2014, an online source for information and tips for parents and teachers, magazines and newsletters, ongoing education and discussion groups for parents, teachers and mothers, and dedicated Vodafone tech experts to impart valuable knowledge and advice for digital parenting, in addition to how-to guides and children's educational games.
