The Reconstructed Living Labs (Rlabs) had a follow up meeting with the Department of Social Development on the Drug Advice Support project in the Western Cape. We came to a conclusion that Drug Advice and Support pilot project will be launched in schools from the 9th of November 2009.
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.
This is a mobile counselling platform not the normal face to face counselling that the NGO’s are use to. Being the worlds first mobile cousellor I got some experience on this system. I am allowed to say there is a Art of being a mobile couselor. All the NGO’s that will be part of the pilot project will get training by the world’s first mobile counsellors in the Rlabs. The aim of this training is to introduce the art of mobile counselling
