Popularising Reading Programme

FunDza supports more than 200 beneficiary groups (schools, libraries, youth development groups and reading groups) around South Africa with sets of accessible and exciting books for teen readers.

Feedback received from readers and beneficiary groups has been extremely positive:

“I didn’t want to put it down. I wanted to know more.”

“I loved the book … It was written in South Africa … It wasn’t something about the suburbs. It was local … it was about black people in the townships!”

“Gave those paperbacks to some of our young people here and they’ve been devouring them! Seems like the books are gripping enough for the guys to want to read them too… They do get the youngsters reading.”
