WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE STAND FOR

eBotho Cyberspace is a public education campaign that began in Botswana in 2020 to raise awareness on cyber threats and promote responsible, safe and meaningful use of digital technologies, mainly the internet.

The campaign was initiated by InFuture Foundation, a non-profit organization that promotes positive societal change through media campaigns, and is supported by the Botswana Communications Regulatory Authority(BOCRA) and Universal Access Service Fund(UASF).

As societies increasingly adopt the use digital technologies for everyday life activities, exposure to cyber threats is equally on the rise.

The eBotho Cyberspace Campaign therefore works to sensitize internet users on cyber security threats as they emerge and pose danger to users and data.

This is with the aim of preventing harms from such threats as online scams and fraud, account and devise hackings, identity theft, human trafficking, children’s rights violations and misinformation, among others.

The eBotho Cyberspace Campaign develops and runs educational messages about these threats on mediums such as web (including social media) radio, television, newspapers, posters and fliers. Expertise is also shared regularly through news commentary on various news mediums.
