To be literate is to be able to read. To be ‘empowered by literacy’, readers need to be able to communicate their thoughts and ideas effectively too. FunDza’s third outreach programme – Developing Young Writers – aims to get young readers writing.
The ‘Fanz’ section of FunDza.mobi provides a platform for young writers to publish their work and showcase their writing. More than 1,000 young writers have had work published, some even submitting novellas of up to 20,000 words all typed out on a cellphone.FunDza Fanz Write4Life Workshops Mentorship Programme
