BOLLYWOOD actress Sonakshi Sinha has joined forces with UNESCO to promote a safe and secure cyber environment for youngsters to ensure they are not targeted for bullying, abuse, exploitation and more through the Iinternet.

A post on the official Twitter handle of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation’s New Delhi cluster office read on Thursday: “Sonakshi Sinha joins UNESCO to promote safe and secure online environment for children and help empower our future digital citizens.”

Sonakshi retweeted it, and shared a video captioned: “I stand for protection of children.” In the video, she says: “Internet use in India is exploding and mobile access has really changed the game. But what does that mean for a country with the world’s largest child’s population? Is cyberspace safe for the children who are under 18? All 470 million of them? Do our girls get to lead their internet life with dignity. The truth is that the risks they are facing are shocking.
