Our graduation ceremony was held on the 2nd of November 2016. The event took place at our host office which is at the Namibia Business Innovation Institute (NBII, NUST) at 1-3, Gluck Street, Windhoek West, Namibia. We usually have two intakes of training per year; the first one takes place from February-May and the second intake is June-October. A total of 105 youth/students graduated in the following courses:

  1. Introduction to Social Media & Digital Media
  2. Advanced Digital Media
  3. Project Management
  4. Social Innovation
  5. Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship
  6. Events Management
  7. Photography & Photo Editing

This was an auspicious event for us, we had speeches from important guests such as the Director of youth development at the Ministry of Sport, Youth & National Service, Special advisor to the vice chancellor of the Namibia University of Science & Technology (NUST) , the group marketing manager of MMI holdings , they sponsored the event, and  the Ambassador of the embassy of Finland and one of the previous RLabs Namibia graduates (2015) who is now employed as a social media programme consultant at one of the rapidly growing organisations (Nampower). She acquired the job through the skills, knowledge and her perseverance. Then of course we had a motivational address by Brent Williams, Director at RLabs Head Quarters in Cape Town, South Africa. It is always such an honour having one of our champions from the head office, grace this event with their presence.


It was a memorable event; the team consists of the following people: Emilia, Uvatera, Leticia, Rachid & Melanie and we are forever thankful for the support of the NBII team and other partners involved.  The youth was awarded certificates and white coffee mugs printed with the RLabs Namibia logo on it
