Doha, 24 July 2019: As part of its commitment to raise digital literacy awareness in the country, Vodafone Qatar invited all employees operating in Companies located out of Qatar Science and Technology Park, to learn how to keep their children safe in the digital world.
With schools closed for the summer holidays, children are spending a significant amount of time online. Using a series of quick interactive activities, the employees were taught core skills around YouTube and YouTube Kids differences, Snap Chat Map features, how to setup parental safety settings and managing their child’s activity on devices.

At Vodafone Qatar, we aim to empower parents and to help them equip their children with the right tools and understanding to navigate the digital world safely and to take full advantage of its benefits,” said Mr. Khames Mohammed Al Naimi, Chief Human Resources Officer, Vodafone Qatar.
