About Us

Digital Shelter

Digital Shelter (DS) is a local initiative founded in March 2018 by human right defenders who are passionate about the intersection between technology and human rights in Somalia with the aim of promoting digital safety, digital rights and inclusion and internet freedom in the growing digital civic space of Somalia. DS sees a world where people are becoming increasingly connected through the Internet and digital tools which brings opportunities and threats particularly those who are using the internet to fight for cause such as human rights defenders, activists and bloggers.  In Somalia, today, the internet has become the primary source of news and information as the number of internet users is increasing by the day with use of social media and the availability of digital devices such as smartphones.

Activists, HRDs, bloggers, and journalists now have a huge platform to advocate for their causes and beliefs because of the growing popularity of the internet. For instance, activists have effectively leveraged social media's influence to topple oppressive governments,
