phambano: 'make a difference'
#eSafetySouthernAfrica is an online and in-person capacity building programme to empower and equip nonprofit organisations in Southern Africa with the necessary tools required to eliminate cyberbullying and online abuse. This programme includes a 365-days-a-year campaign to equip women-led and serving nonprofits with tech tools to advocate against gender-based violence.
Technology-facilitated GBV and cyberbullying is not something that will self-correct. It will take empathy, strategic and sustained action, based on an understanding of its root cause, to break the cycle. We believe that technology can be a powerful tool to campaign against gender-based violence and cyberbullying, when used responsibly. Our #eSafetySouthernAfrica programme reaches all genders, all races, all religions and people from all walks of life through our workshops, blogs, social media platforms and TechClinics.
#16DaysOfActivism - 2021
Technology-facilitated GBV is the action by one or more people that harms others based on their sexual or gender identity or by enforcing harmful gender norms. This action is carried out using the internet and/or mobile technology and includes stalking, bullying, sexual harassment, defamation, hate speech and exploitation.
Awareness. Action. Accountability. Access.
