Facebook introduces Digital Literacy Library in 6 Indian languages

In order to train 3 lakh Indians on digital safety, Facebook has introduced the Digital Literacy Library in six Indian languages, including Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. 

Antigone Davis, Global Head for Safety, Facebook, said, "Everyone deserves to feel safe on Facebook, and we feel it is important that we help people safely navigate the Internet. The launch of the Digital Literacy Library, the child safety hackathon and several offline training programs we run in partnership with local experts, reaffirm our seriousness in combating online abuse. We expect to train 3,00,000 people by end of 2018, and we will multiply these efforts in times to come." 

The Digital Literacy Library will help young people build the skills needed to safely enjoy digital technology. It will be a resource for educators looking to address digital literacy.

"These trainings are targeted primarily towards women and youth and are being done in collaboration with organizations such as Cyber Peace Foundation, Learning Links Foundation, Internet and Mobile Association of India, Gaon Connection, and Centre for Social Research, to name a few," Davis added.
