The initiative aims at Education, Empowerment & Bridging of general population with the authorities.
Goals of this initiative
To create educational awareness about cyber safety, the Foundation conducts workshops across the country in schools, colleges, tech universities, IITs, IIMs, teachers trainings, parents and more. Objective of these workshops is to educate mindful use of technology.
Its a pre emptive measure of making sure the probabilities of crime are reduced. It is also an effort to inspire everyone to give back to the country with their own skills. The initiative has appointed its ambassadors & champions across the country to take forward this education at schools, colleges.
The initiative has a panel of lawyers, legal experts & members of other NGOs that empower with law & processes. One of the big gaps in India is that often we are not aware of our rights. We aim to help with information that can empower you in any situation of cyber safety.

Bridging is the most unique attribute of the initiative. We have a host of senior police officers from across the country supporting us in content & awareness drive.
We are also honoured to have IG Navniet Sekera (Uttar Pradesh), IG Roopa Moudgil (Karnataka) & IG Krishna Prakash (Maharashtra) on our advisory board. This unique strength helps us address any victim complaints that come to us as well as inform people about various measures of law enforcement across the country.
