Today RLabs launched an exciting new initiative called RLabsU providing access to various skills programmes to community members. RLabsU Hubs leverages existing community assets to host the training programmes through its “Academy in a Box model”

The two RLabsU hubs launched today are based in Khayelitsha and Gugulethu (in partnership with College of Cape Town). The programmes that were offered this morning were Small Business Management and Introduction to Computers. The excitement from the community members who attended sessions was evident in their active participation. Through RLabsU we hope to reach more than 10,000 additional community members through our skills development programmes in 2016.
