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. Our #tech2endG-gbv programme is designed to educate women-led and serving nonprofits about online harassment and equip them with the tech tools to #endgbv


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.
