Facebook partners with African NGOs for Safer Internet Day Celebration

On  5 February  2019, Facebook supported  more than 20 non-profit  organisations and government agencies in Africa, as they worked to sensitise people about Internet safety and security, on the occasion of Safer Internet Day 2019 (SID2019).

Facebook supported SID2019 by sponsoring the printing of online safety awareness booklets, facilitating training sessions, and raising awareness in their ‘Facebook Safety Center’.

Sherry Dzinoreva, Head of Africa Policy Programmes at Facebook, said they are happy to contribute in making the Internet better. The campaign covered most of Sub-Saharan Africa.
