RLabs breaking barriers

What an exciting week ahead for the Reconstructed Living Lab with RLabs not only breaking the 45,000 conversations mark in the Substance Abuse Mobile Counselling service and training over 300 community members in Social Media, but the team will also be managing the Social Media activities for the World Bank.

The World Bank is hosting the Innovation Fair in Cape Town this week and approached RLabs (Thanks to Rafiq from Webaddicts) to come on board as their Social Media partner. These activities will be done via the Social Media Factory a RLabs inititiave. This is definitely more barriers being broken by the RLabs team who are all community members who were reconstructed through technology. This is another milestone as the RLabs community are planning to grow the activities to the Eastern Cape, United Kingdom, Namibia and South-East Asia this year.
