SLT introduces Sisu Connect and Web Guard

Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) with the National Child Protection Authority (NCPA) carried out a series of islandwide awareness programs recently focused on protecting children against all forms of abuse, to mark World Children's Day.

SLT employees also volunteered to distribute leaflets in selected schools islandwide to raise awareness among children and the community at large about the urgent need to protect our children from all kinds of abuse.

With the cases of child abuse on the rise, SLT embarked on this CSR initiative last year with an islandwide awareness campaign followed by an awareness program at Anuradhapura, the area which recorded the highest number of child abuse cases in 2012. The first program educated 200 principals, teachers and students about the different forms of child abuse, how to identify and report it to prevent these incidents from happening in the future.

Since then, the company has been committed towards this cause and under the guidance of the NCPA, it has been continuing this project with employees in SLT Offices islandwide conducting awareness programs at schools this year as well.

Up to the end of September, nearly 9,000 students in 29 schools across the island have been educated about the various forms of child abuse, how to avoid unethical influences.

By the end of this year, the company plans to educate over 40,000 children from over 200 schools with the help of the company's islandwide network of offices.

Through this project, SLT aims to bring about a safe, secure and healthy environment where children are protected from all forms of abuse, including child labour. The programs also emphasise the community's responsibility towards protecting children from abuse of all kinds.

SLT has introduced several innovative products to ensure the protection and safety of children, such as SLT Sisu Connect and SLT Web Guard.

Sisu Connect is a value added service provided by SLT with the Ministry of Education to ensure that children are always in touch with their parents no matter where the are physically.
