What is your part in the community?

Today for the Introduction to Social Media class at Rlabs we were asked to go out in the property of RLabs and write about something you see or interview someone. I decided to interview Bradley Naidoo whose heart goes out to kids with absent fathers because they end up going through substance and alcohol abuse .

I asked him what his part in the community is. He told me he has a specific outreach. In connection with Impact Direct Ministries and RLabs he has a support group for people of the community that runs on a Friday. He looks at needs in the community and designs programs. He does counselling, personal development, life skills and the Friday support group. The support group has people from the community that goes through a 3 month skills and development program in connection with Impact Direct Ministries. Then they become part of the reconstructed classes that he runs in connection with RLabs.

RLabs gives him resources and equipment such as laptops to run the reconstructed classes where they are allowed to spread their wings, tell their stories via social media platforms.

Citizen With A Voice

The way we see life has a different meaning to us all. In this day and age we all have the power of the media to share our stories.

The Introduction to Social Media class at  RLabs  went into the surrounding community to do Citizen Journalism. The diverse group of participants had no problem finding stories to blog about.

With many different projects running on the City Mission grounds it's easy to say that peoples lives are being impacted in a positive way. I am looking forward to be reading the stories from our very own journalist.     


Unemployment in our community is a major factor to poverty it also leads to all sort of drug abuse which leads to crime.On our latest censors we have 51 million people in our country of which 25% is unemployed that is 12.75 million that is why we have a such a high crime rate in our community.Thanks to Rlabs for getting involve in the community offering classes to the community for free and uplifting the spirit of the community and letting them know there is hope for the future.
