(Africa Child Online Protection Education & awareness Centre)
ACOPEA is a pan African e-safety champion plays a decisive role in partnership with multistakholders at national, regional & international levels, in protecting children, young people, families and society from all forms of abuse online, with a particular emphasis on early intervention through education & awareness response.
We want people to understand that the Internet can be a fantastic place for young people to learn, have fun and engage with their family and friends. There are however risks, which children and young people need to be aware of to ensure that they can protect themselves. It is therefore vital that ACOPEA focuses in empowering children with the knowledge and the skills to manage the risks and to go for help.
Therefore ACOPEA primarily focuses on education & awareness and capacity building as well as facilitating the reporting of illegal activities online to protect citizens safety and that of children and young people.
