Gojek partners Indonesia government to improve digital literacy
Ride hailing app Gojek has partnered with Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology and the University of Gadjah Mada to help improve the country’s digital literacy.
While digital usage in Indonesia is among the highest in the world, with around 170 million internet users, digital literacy is still relatively low.
And Gojek, which is a platform that provides ride hailing and delivery services and even massage services, will be launching a public awareness campaign on the various types of online fraud and how to avoid falling victim by instilling good cybersecurity habits through in-app games.
The campaign will also include public-service announcements and seminars conducted by the university.
Kevin Aluwi, Co-CEO of Gojek said, “Gojek wants to be the platform that consumers go to not only for solutions to their everyday challenges, but also because they feel safe and at ease using services on our platform”.
“As the Gojek platform continues to grow and impact more people in Indonesia and across the region, so does our commitment to protecting our users. Central to this is our focus on providing users with the knowledge and tools necessary to ensure their wellbeing,” he added.
Semuel Abrijani Pangerapan, Director General of Informatics Applications at Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, said, “While digital usage in Indonesia is among the highest in the world, with around 170 million internet users, digital literacy is still relatively low.
“In order not to lose momentum, we must work hard together to improve Indonesia’s digital literacy.”
