Abstract

The use of the internet and Information Technology (IT) provide innumerable facilities for individuals. Children and young people are the most active group who use and explore all the facilities promoting their social well-being. However, all of these facilities also pose several risks especially for children and young people. Online dangers such as cyberbullying, child pornography and identify theft represent a danger for them. Thus, educate them about online dangers is a crucial aspect. Worldwide, especially in developed countries many initiatives have been implementing to raise awareness and educate children and young people how to behave safely in cyberspace. In developing countries for instance, in African countries these type of initiatives are at its infancy stages or does not exist. Currently, there is lack of these initiatives in Mozambique. Therefore, this paper proposes a cyber safety model for primary and secondary schools in Mozambique to address this gap and promote a cyber safety culture among children and young people.
