Sonakshi Sinha and UNESCO Promote Cyber Security
Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha has joined hands with UNESCO to promote cyber security for children and teenagers. Her aim is to make sure that children do not have to face cyber bullying any longer, and to provide a secure online experience. In a video shared by UNESCO New Delhi, Sonakshi said, "Internet use in India is exploding and mobile access has really changed the game. But what does that mean for a country with the world's largest child's population? Is cyberspace safe for the children who are under 18? All 470 million of them? Do our girls get to lead their internet life with dignity? The truth is that the risks they are facing are shocking. Children are easy targets for cyberbullying, online sexual abuse and exploitation, the enticement to illegal behaviour and many more such horrific things. It is also true that internet and social media play a huge part in influencing the truth today. I am truly concerned, and as an active citizen, I would like to make sure that our boys and girls are protected both online and offline." UNICEF has recognized Sonakshi as a champion of children's rights.
