HIM’s digital safety programme targets journalists and other Human Rights Defenders (HRD’s) and we offer them training on how to remain safe in the digital world, how to secure their online presence and how to work with the new digital tools that keep evolving with time.
In this endeavor, we have so far trained 254 journalists and HRD’s from different districts of the country. We have also set up a pool of 30 Digital Safety trainers located in different parts of the country to cater for those specific regions.
Our Digital Safety programme has been highly supported by Deutsche Welle Akademie (DWA), the training arm of German’s oldest broadcaster, Deutsche Welle. DWA has supported HIM to develop a Digital Safety App, Weekume App, which provides different DigSec solutions to it’s beneficiaries.
