On Thursday we launched our pilot project called MoCo (Mobile Counselling) services and all the NGO,s involved came together at The Impact Centre for the launch.All of the various representatives from the different organisations first met met for some nibbles and something to drink before MoCo went live.
After filling out tummies and quenching our thirst, it was time get down to some serious work.We had each organisation set up at their own station as they got ready to counsel young people out their on their mobile phones that is facing problems with substance abuse and other issues.
I am so proud to be part of the fisrt ever mobile counselling service in the world.And to be playing an intrical part in all of this.
Here are some stats as to how the first day of counselling session went:
During the first two hour session of the pilot, 103 subscribers made contact with us and 2034 messages were sent to people in need of support in the area of drug addiction.
