RLabs in partnership with Vodacom Foundation and JamiiX are offering 100 NGOs, non-profits, educational organizations, schools, community organisations and social groups the opportunity to leverage the power of mobile phone technology.
This as an initial roll out will give organisations access to the JamiiX Education and Health portals providing an opportunity to communicate and engage with their userbase via mobile chat platforms and instant messengers (e.g. Mxit). “With more than 30 million South Africans using mobile chat, social networks and instant messengers its provides a unique opportunity for organisations to leverage these new platforms of communication amongst youth” according to RLabs Founder, Marlon Parker.
This opportunity is currently only open to organisations operating in the Western Cape and RLabs will also provide workshops at NO COST on the platform and the concepts of mobile counselling and support. We hope that through these partnerships and offering that many more communities can be reached through the use of mobile technologies and the organisations being empowered will be able to increase their channels of support to serving the people in need.
If your organisation is interested in being able to provide value added services via Mxit and other mobile platforms, please contact us for more information. Please note that there will be an expansion to other provinces with this offer later this year and we will keep you updated on its progress.
