Crowdfunding Internet Safety Events

Clicar aqui para versão em Português


42% of Portuguese youth between 9 and 16 years of age did not have any advice on Internet safety!


65% of parents would like to receive information and advice from their child's school, but only 28% actually had it!


As these figures show, after 10 years "on the road", participating as a speaker / trainer in awareness raising / training events about online safety of kids, tweens and teens, we need to keep on doing it. But for that we need your help.

Tito de Morais, founder of the MiudosSegurosNa.Net Project, is interviewd by a group of students from the Escola Básica 1, 2 António José de Ávila school, at Horta, Faial, Azores, after an Internet safety awareness event promoted by local child protection authorities in April 2008.

Why Is Your Contribution Important?

With your investment we’ll be able to reach more families, schools and communities. Those who want and need to receive information and advice about online safety of kids, tweens and teens. Especially those that, as a result of the financial crisis situation in Portugal, with budgetary cuts in education and social services, request our presence but lack the resources and support.

Give Your Contribution

To do this, simply choose the amount of your investment and its reward in our crowdfunding page.


Why Is Your Investment Needed?

Consider a message with a request for help we received recently:


"A friend of my father called in desperation to tell me that his granddaughter was being a victim of cyberbullying. Basically, someone creates fake profiles on her behalf, posts photos with her and then begins to send friend requests to her friends, etc.. Since the girl is 16 years old this is the affecting her deeply. He says that despite reporting it, Facebook does not remove these accounts. I remembered to write you because I know you’ve probably dealt with this type of cases in the past and I was wondering what’s the best procedure to follow. "


The assistance provided in this case resulted in an investment on behalf of a company in the amount of 100 € that will be added to other investments in order to provide a free Internet safety awareness session. We know that times are not easy for anyone, so any amount is welcome.

Offer Us a Cup of Coffee!

As mentioned above, if all our fans on Facebook invested the value equivalent to less than of coffee over a 1 year period it would be a precious help. So, give us a cup coffee or, if possible, a little more.
