    Petra)-Coinciding with the International Day for the Prevention of Child Abuse, marked on November 19th, the Jordan River Foundation (JRF), in partnership with United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), has launched a community campaign to protect children from sexual exploitation and cyberbullying.
    The campaign features 12 films and awareness-raising materials on tips and instructions to enable children, families and adolescents to deal with situations that may expose them to abuse online, according to a press statement issued by the JRF on Thursday.
    The event, launched remotely, was attended by the Minister of Social Development, Ayman Mufleh, Tania Shabweizat, the representative of the UNICEF, Jordan, and the JRF Director General, Ena'am Barishi.
    Since children are spending more time online than ever before, it is important to keep children safe and protected through effective online protection, said Chapuisat during the inaugural ceremony.
    Children and parents must be empowered through knowledge of the dangers that exist on the Internet, and joint cooperation needed to enable the government, public and private sector institutions to take measures to ensure that children have a safe and positive experience online, Chapuisat added.
    For her part, Barishi said: 'This community campaign, launched in partnership with UNICEF, covers an integrated services system that the JRF has worked to develop through child protection programs that enabled more than 16,500 beneficiaries this year, in addition to the 110 family and child hot line that dealt with more than 3,660 real calls.
    This community campaign also supports the 'Mobile Social Innovation Incubators' project, in partnership with UNICEF and the Ministry of Youth, through the 'Hackathon Share', which aims, in its fourth session 2020, to motivate young people and adolescents to find pioneering technical solutions to reduce the phenomenon of sexual exploitation of our children via the Internet, according to Barishi.
