Mobile Counselling for High Schools in the Western Cape

This morning a number of the RLabs team went to schools across the Western Cape to share the Mobile Counselling service with the learners. These roadshows are part of a RLabs project to support children at risk who are impacted by substance abuse and who are at risk. This initiative is support by a number of local Non-profit organisations who offer support and professional counselling services. The mobile counselling at schools are an ideal opportunity for schools to identify problems and support learners who previously were unable to access services. With a 1 to 40 Social Worker to Number of Schools ratio it is no surprise that the service already attracted over a thousand learners in need. Mobile phones are not just communication devices but can be used in developing communities to provide support and access to services for citizens in these communities.
