This last week our founder, Nighat Dad, was invited to represent the Digital Rights Foundation at the UN Solutions Summit and to present it's solutions as one of their Top Ten Entrepreneur contenders.
The Summit, which was held at the UN's SDG Media Zone on the 25th of September, provided Ms. Dad with the opportunity to highlight the need for protection of individuals, particularly women, against cyberbullying, discrimination, and intimidation.
She also went on to say that "Online human rights must be recognized and upheld like offline human rights."

The article featured in Forbes had the following to say about the Summit:

'Last week, while countless world leaders made empty speeches to the UN General Assembly, a group of real change makers were nearby pitching their innovative technologies and programs, and challenging the world to scale actual solutions to our greatest challenges.'
