Langa residents will now have access to a library of tech devices, including tablets and smartphones.
The new tech library is part of iKhaya Le Langa, a World Design Capital project (#WDC229) that aims to uplift this historical township by tackling unemployment through community regeneration and social enterprise. ‘iKhaya le Langa’ means ‘house of the sun’.
The project is being run in conjunction with Microsoft, which is providing the devices as well as training workshops for users before they are inducted as library members. They will be taught how to use the devices as well as receive training in software such as Microsoft Office and Skype, and the ins and outs of cloud storage.
