"Through education, we can empower children to stay safe online" - says UNICEF's celebrity advocate Ayushmann Khurrana 

On Safer Internet Day today, Ayushmann and UNICEF have collaborated again to create awareness on how education can lead children to harness the full potential of the internet. “The online world presents such a great chance for children to learn and share their ideas. This Safer Internet Day, let’s encourage children, especially girls to explore the internet and fuel their ambitions and dreams for a promising future,” says Ayushmann.

He adds, “The opportunities presented by the internet are endless. Children can learn more and share their ideas with the world. The internet is full of ideas and imagination, much like the mind of a child. There are also dangers, but through education, we can empower children to stay safe online. This Safer Internet Day, let’s work to end violence online and make the online world a safer space for every child.”
