MCCSA PROGRAMS

Safer Children, Safer Communities


This project will work with parents, carers, children and youth from six culturally and linguistically diverse communities.  The two-year long project aims to increase understanding on how to prevent child sexual exploitation, including online exploitation, and ensure that youth, children and adults know how to reach out for help if needed.

In the pilot project, the Multicultural Communities of South Australia delivered child sexual exploitation prevention workshops, including online prevention workshops to Colombian and Somali migrant communities.

This project will build on the findings of the previous project and will provide communities with general information on digital literacy, internet safety, usage of devices and social media, how to set up parental controls and privacy functions.

Key adult and youth influencers from participating communities will be invited to form the very first CALD Child Friendly Network.

The Network will look into discussing issues of concerns within their respective communities, enable peer learning, capacity building  and assist staying up-to-date on how to best tackle growing dangers of the online world.
