Birth of Mom 2.0
Many have been waiting for the next phase of the reconstruction project and it is finally here, special thanks to my beautiful wife Rene. The project is where women/mothers from local communities are empowered with skills using Web 2.0 technologies to share their experiences, knowledge, life stories with people all over the world. This is also a way how mothers/guardians can connect with tech savvy young people on platform they are comfortable with. What is interesting about this initiative is that it will be facilitated by Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) and Impact Direct Ministries (IDM), but the empowerment and training will be done by our Reconstructed Impact Team, the ex-drug addicts and ex-gangsters. We are excited about the Mom 2.0 initiave and the official launch will be Monday, 22 September 2008 at the Impact Centre in Bridgetown. Our special guest speaker is Viola Manuel Executive Director from the Cape Information Technology Initiative (CITI)and our first class of women from the local community.
