October 30, 2009 § Leave a comment
We had a follow up meeting at Reconstructed Living Labs (RLABS) with The Department Of Social Development last week Friday (23rd October) to determine when our pilot project would be launched.
The five areas in the Western Cape that will be targeted is, Khyalitsha, Atlantis, Mitchells Plain, Athlone & Paarl. The NGO’s that will be part of this project is SANCA, Dop Stop, Sultun Bahu and Impact Direct Ministiers. This NGO’s will target 3 schools each in their area from grade 8-10. Each of the NGO’s will have two cousellors that will be online for four hours per day Monday-Thursday.
As we here at RLABS have developed the system we will be using to do the mobile counseling from, we were delegated to do the training with the 5 NGO,s as to how to use the system.We will be starting the training this Monday ( 2nd November) with the 5 NGO,s and th training will run for two and a half days.
This is the start of great things and new parterships as we come together to combat the scurge of drugs on The Cape Flats that is destroying homes and our community.
I will be keeping you updated as we things progress.
