A new campaign was designed to show what cyberbullying looks like in real life. Lead SA is working to stop cyberbullying in South Africa with a similar campaign.


Lead SA has announced their new campaign for this year’s 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children (25 November – 10 December). They have teamed up with Media Monitoring Africa (MMA) to launch a series of stories created by Web Rangers that highlight the abuse and violence faced by young people online.

They are also using a new Instagram account to discuss the dangers of online; sexting, catfishing, harassment, cyberstalking, online bullying and more. The aim is to educate teens to behave responsibly with their internet access.

The Web Rangers Lead 16 Days of activism initiative is a guide on web survival that every child and parent should follow. Use #16Plus to stay updated!

“We can all play our part in ending bullying – online as well as offline.”

The ‘In Real Life #Be Strong’ campaign highlights exactly what cyberbullying would look like in real life. They point out that if it isn’t ok to say in public, face-to-face, it isn’t ok to say online either! The video should be very eyeopening for most. It gave us chills and we wanted to cry!

Remember the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children campaign. Let’s work to stop cyberbullying!
