Narail: A 17-year-old boy from Bangladesh was awarded the International Children’s Peace Prize for his work in combating cyberbullying in his country.

The teenager developed a mobile application that helps the young generation to report cyberbullying.

The app also provides useful tips about online behavior.

Sadat Rahman, developed the app in his western district of Narail in Bangladesh that also provides education about online bullying.

“The fight against cyberbullying is like a war, and in this war, I am a warrior,” Rahman said in an impassioned speech after he was handed the award at a ceremony in The Hague, which was live-streamed due to coronavirus restrictions.

“If everybody keeps supporting me, then together we will win this battle against cyberbullying,” he said. The teen vowed to keep fighting online abuse involving children until it is eradicated.

Rahman came up with the idea of the “Cyber Teens” mobile app after hearing the story of a 15-year-old girl who experienced cyberbullying and ultimately died by suicide.

The app puts children in touch with a team of youngsters, including Rahman, who then liaise with local police and social workers to help teens too scared or embarrassed to report acts of cyberbullying and cybercrime.

The app also gives helpful tips about online behavior and how to avoid sexual predators.

The award is accompanied by a fund of €1,00,000 (Rs 88,21,851), which is invested in projects that are closely linked to the winner’s work.
