Ilizwe Lam

We partnered with Meta to run an internet safety skills campaign for high school learners across South Africa called Ilizwe Lam (My Digital World). Through this project, we educate, inform and empower 13 to 18 years olds with the right tools and information to explore the internet and also protect themselves online. Since 2018, we have trained over 10,430 learners and 820 teachers through Ilizwe Lam.

The course teaches students the essential responsibilities that accompany digital citizenship, privacy protection, how to check facts and avoid misinformation, and key actions points for maintaining healthy and safe interactions online. Ilizwe Lam paves the way for these learners to think critically about online content, thus preparing them for adulthood in a world where the internet is an unavoidable part of society.

Kitso WhatsApp Learning Bot, Digify Africa

Kitso

Our ambition to reach marginalised communities drove us to create a new learning solution that would provide online safety skills to marginalised communities and people who may have limited data. It was only natural that WhatsApp was considered a platform through which we can contact a new audience. In 2020, we transformed our online safety education from Ilizwe Lam into an innovative WhatsApp bot called Kitso (Knowledge) that caters for teachers and parents. This move helped break down the barriers to accessing our training.
