As part of Telenor Asia’s 25th Anniversary, our Game Changer interviews celebrate women and men in Asia that Telenor has supported in their quests to harness the power of connectivity for the benefit of their communities.
Ms. Kalaya started FabCafe, a creative space in Bangkok, Thailand, which combines a work-friendly cafe, a 3D printing workshop and a classroom. She had already been welcoming children for tech-focused workshops when she first met with the team from Young Safe Internet Leaders Camp, a project from dtac, a Telenor Group company. Together, they developed a game changer for Thailand: a metaverse workshop for children to bridge the gap between digital skills and life skills.
Now in its sixth year, the dtac Safe Internet program reached 300,000 youths in 2021 alone. And thanks to Kalaya, the program is now a blend of hard and soft skills that equips teens with critical tools to navigate the online world safely and become more creative, productive and innovative netizens.
