Empowering families to be smart, safe and responsible

eSmart Schools

What is eSmart?

Our goal is to keep children safe from bullying, cyber bullying and violence.

While the internet is great for learning and socialising, at the Alannah & Madeline Foundation we hear stories every day about its pitfalls. These range from children being exposed to inappropriate content, fraud and scams, and being bullied – which can and does contribute to anxiety, depression and in extreme cases, suicide. Yes, that’s the extreme outcome, but tragically, it’s also reality. And it probably happens more often than you think.

As a nation, we should all be working to ensure we invest time and resources into raising a generation of smart, safe and responsible children who are capable and compassionate – both on and offline.

Our goal is to keep children safe from bullying, cyber bullying and violence.

eSmart is a way to achieve this.
