“This is the first internet safety programme for school children being conducted by Facebook in Assam. In today’s world, children spend a lot of time on the internet which impact their physical safety and development. Therefore, a few government and private schools in Guwahati have decided to collaborate with Learning Links Foundation and Facebook India to carry out campiagns on online safety. Till date, 1,360 students have benefited through this programme,” said Karishma Sharma, who is the state consultant of Learning Links Foundation, reports TOI.
