This week has been a week of Outreach for our team in Cape Town, with one of the biggest projects being our mobile senior training session consisting of 90 senior citizens in the community.
In our communities our senior members are usually given mobile phones as a gift or a necessity by their children, but with no knowledge of how to operate the device. So the RLabs team in Cape Town went out to empower 90 of our senior citizens with everything they needed to know about using their mobile devices effectively.
The training consisted of basic operations when using your cellular phone such as knowing how to receive and make phone calls, sending and receiving a sms (short messaging service) as well as becoming familiar with their network operators.
With our senior citizens only knowing how to use a telephone, they left the training session with more courage, boldness and patience to make use of their mobile devices effectively.
