Why did they become part of the TBTT campaign
I asked Fariha Akhtar and Syed Talha Izhar why they got involved in the TakeBacktheTech campaign – the 16 days of activism against Violence against Women. Here is what they said:
These young people are concerned about the society and the world in which they live. They want to do something positive to improve the lives of their peers and their communities. They see technology as an enabler for the young women and men of this country.
Being involved and contributing towards making technology safe, creating support networks online and spreading the positive use of technology for the empowerment of the people of Pakistan as well as for the development of the country is what they are trying to do. Many people have joined the TBTT campaign and are using it as a starting point towards using technology for the enablement of people – young and old.
