ChildSafeNet

Enhancing Parental Roles in Protecting Children from Online Sexual Exploitation and Abuse

Countries involved:
Nepal

Online child sexual abuse and exploitation can affect almost all households globally – and parents and caregivers, who can be influential in most, if not all, settings of children’s lives, play an important role in keeping children safe online. But how well-equipped are they to keep them safe? 

In Nepal, at a time when the increased access and affordability of the internet in the country is putting children at a higher risk of online harm, most parents may have little to no knowledge of online risks for children and online safety. ChildSafeNet’s research, therefore, focuses on parents – it aims to explore their perspectives, knowledge, and awareness of online risks for children, with a focus on protecting children from online sexual abuse and exploitation. This will develop a knowledge base on parents’ preferences for effective technological solutions and awareness measures for education on online safety.

    1. Operationalising the Comprehensive School Safety Master Plan;
    2. Building capacity of headteachers and government officials to create a safer learning environment;
    3. Building capacities of teachers on positive discipline and classroom management;
    4. Supporting student-led initiatives;
    5. Establishing and activating Student groups (Peace Circles); and
    6. Raising awareness among community members for behavioural change.
