Safer Internet Plus Project
The Safer Internet HU3 Projects is the continuation of the HU1-HU2 projects proceeding from 2009.
In consortium with the International Children's Safety Service, and the National Info-Communicational Service Provider Ltd, the goal of the consortium is to act as a Safer Internet Centre in Hungary, organizing helpline, hotline and awareness raising activities. More information about the project: www.saferinternet.hu
The main part of KV Foundation in the project is to operate the Internet helpline.
The main aim of the Internet helpline is to help children recognize the online risks and give them advice to prevent the realization of these risks. We give emotional support to the victims of online harms and also helps to organise concrete help for the victims and their relatives. The helpline is a great opportunity for young people to share those experiences that they do not want to tell their parents, they can ask for help on their own, without the contribution of the parents.
The activities of the Kek Vonal Child Crisis Foundation within the project are:
to operate the nationwide Internet Helpline service 24/7: including telephone helpline service, e-mail service through kek-vonal.hu website (called EMIL), and chat service also through the website.
to carry on the promotion tasks in order to raise the visibility of the service among the target groups, to raise awareness about the online risks that children can be exposed to, and to highlight the importance of prevention.
to carry out “off-line” activities, such as school visit programme, participation at public events.
Our Foundation – within this project - helps children who are victims of cyberbullying, grooming, sexing or faced illegal or harmful content.
Parents and teachers are also able to find help through our channels (e-mail, chat and telephone) on internet safety issues.
The topics we deal with are: cyberbullying, grooming, inappropriate, harmful content, dangerous, harmful contact, internet addiction, data misuse, online games, abuse on the internet, online friends (chat, msn, SNS), sexing, safety tips, general questions about the use of the internet, problems and questions about internet safety.
Missing Children Hotline
The overall goal of the project was to strengthen the Hungarian child protection services by sustainable operation of the Missing Children Hotline.The Hotline Operation have been continuous, and this way vulnerable children could reach a low threshold anonymous service when in need, which was on many occasion the entry point for them to come into contact with the child protection system and receive professional help. The Hotline was reached on many occasions by professionals working with children as part of the child alert system in order to have consultations with us in regards to children safeguarding issues.
The Missing Children Expert Conferences and the various trainings provided to different stakeholders in child protection through this project, reinforced the cross-sectorial, inter-disciplinary cooperation procedures, improved the knowledge transfer between the different actors and supported the exchange of best practices. As a result of the project a more protective and empowering environment will be created by the professionals benefited from our activities for those children in need.
Awareness raising on the role of Kék Vonal in the child protection system as an entry point was reached by this project, as we experienced an increased number of calls from professionals from the child alert system, who needed our expertise and reassurance to report safeguarding issues to the Child protection services.
The calls received from children homes and foster placement have also increased as a result of our poster campaign. Children living in statutory care are the most vulnerable in terms of going missing or running away, but are many time reluctant to ask for help within their environment even if they are at risk. Through the anonymous conversations on the Hotline we could build trust with these children and managed to involve their carers and guardians to resolve the problems they were facing.
With our short movies and media coverage we contributed to the growing public awareness of the issue of child disappearances.
Our aim was to create a long term plan of the organization which ensure the sustainability of the hotline after the end of the EC funding. Kék Vonal evaluated the 116 000 Missing Children Hotline service and found its strengths and weaknesses and defined the areas for development.
The project is supported by the European Union Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme 2014-2020.
