Digital Rights Foundation

Digital Rights Foundation is a registered research based advocacy NGO focusing on ICTs to support human rights, democratic processes and digital governance. DRF envisions a place where all people, and especially women, are able to exercise their right of expression without being threatened. They believe that free internet with access to information and impeccable privacy policies can encourage such a healthy and productive environment that would eventually help not only women, but the world at large. Digital Rights Foundation aims to strengthen protections for human rights defenders (HRDs), with a focus on women's rights, in digital spaces through policy advocacy & digital security awareness-raising. In addition, one of their aims at the Foundation is also to protect women from work and cyber-harassment that they have to deal with through out their lives. They make them aware of their rights. With growing privacy concerns on digital spaces, DRF seeks to increase awareness about privacy issues & defend the right to privacy by research, monitoring and reporting the tactics around surveillance. To rally with other actors for strong legal protection for privacy in the country and to raise the voice against dictating censorship policies, they intend to propose viable solutions to the government.
