Technology is life and no girl should be left out! Women Inspiration Development launch the use of "Ibiabo" which means "Place of safety" an app to bridge the gap between survivors of Gender Based Violence and helps they need to continue to survive and get over their abuse. On that same day 112 Confident girls was trained on cybersecurity and safety online as part of the World Pulse initiative, her digital leadership alliance. 

As girls are included in technology, it is germane that they have the skills to be safe online. As we are in the world that girls are not safe anywhere offline so also are girls seriously threatened online. Online predators are always looking for girls to dupe, abuse and molested. By the end of January, 2021, each Ambassador are to train 10 more Ambassadors Ambassadors and bring them to World Pulse community.

The girls were so excited as they were learning news ways of strengthens their passwords, what they should share online, what they should share, reporting abuse online and detecting fake news and fake information.

The training was indeed a great way of celebrating the Day of Girl Child, Confident Girls Ambassadors are breaking the silence!!!
