Brighter Futures, a UK-backed charity supporting children and young people, has unveiled the “thrive online” campaign to tackle cyber-related crimes in Nigeria.

The non-profit organisation also launched the “cancel cults” campaign to address cultism and other forms of serious organised crimes (SOC) in Nigeria.

In a statement on Friday, the organisation said the initiative seeks to discourage young Nigerians from engaging in fraud.

“The primary aim of the Thrive Online campaign is to educate youths on the fact that hardly anyone makes a decent living through cybercrime. Most people waste their time and get nothing in return,” the statement reads.


“Involvement in cybercrime is a criminal offense that can have severe consequences, including imprisonment. Additionally, involvement in cybercrimes can destroy the lives of people affected, including their family members, loved ones, and friends.

“The campaign also seeks to highlight the positive ways youths can build a livelihood using online platforms, such as online businesses, learning new skills, and legitimate online-based jobs in tech.”

The Brighter Futures said its team is working with the Nigerian government and other civil society organisations to create a safer and more prosperous future for the country.


The organisation added that both campaigns have recorded significant progress in Edo and Bayelsa states.
