Briefly News reported that the actress officially launched the campaign in February 2024 and spoke about her history of being cyberbullied.

Tebogo told the publication about the origin of her foundation:

"The name 'Botlhale' means 'wisdom' in Setswana. The foundation is inspired by the idea that wisdom and understanding are crucial in navigating the challenges of the digital age.
"We aim to empower young people with the knowledge and resources they need to handle online interactions wisely and safely."

The actress went on to speak about the misconceptions of cyberbullying:

"One major misconception about cyberbullying is that it's not as harmful as face-to-face bullying. However, the emotional and psychological effects can be just as severe, if not more so, because the abuse can be relentless and widespread.
"Now is the time to take action because the rise of digital platforms has led to an increase in cyberbullying incidents, and it's crucial to address this issue proactively to create a safer online environment for everyone."
