eKasiLabs
The purpose of establishing the eKasiLabs programme is to take innovation to the people by establishing co-creation and innovation spaces in the townships where local communities are able to access the services and facilities that are offered at The Innovation Hub. Extending these services and facilities to the townships addresses problems of access and seeks to re-industrialise the community and unemployed youth so that employment is created in their area of residence through skills and enterprise development.
 
Some of the desired outcomes of the eKasiLabs are:
 
Establishment of viable and sustainable township enterprises
