Job Description

“Safety n Us” is a proactive organization that seeks to address the root cause of forms of violence against children in the context of the 21st century connected society. In the digital society, children have surpassed their adults in technology usage and have been thrown in the deep end of technology, exposing them to new forms of vulnerabilities. Direct violence takes the forms of cyberbullying, exposure to illicit content and even scams. Technology also exposes them to paedophiles and traffickers which lead to child sexual abuse, trafficking and sometimes drug abuse. Given the digital divide between the younger and older generations, it is imperative to address child violence with new and innovative ways that can match the complex dangers against children in a digital society. Our thematic areas of work include: Online Safety; Psychosocial Support and Protection; Advocacy and Awareness; Education. For more information, you can visit www.safetynus.org
