FunDza is getting books and stories – whether in print or electronic format – into the hands of teens and young adults from under-resourced ‘book-poor’ communities. In addition, it is encouraging young people to explore their creative talents and start writing too. It works formally through groups and informally, reaching people through the use of mobile technology.
Through its outreach programmes, FunDza is reaching the following stakeholder groups: FunDza Family, FunDza Fanz and FunDza Friends. Click on the links below to find out more about how we work with our different stakeholder groups.
FunDza is currently supporting 120+ Family groups (these could be an informal reading clubs, a school, a community library, an after-school programme or youth development initiative) around the country. These groups use FunDza materials to promote reading and writing.
The fundza.mobi platform reaches ±250,000 unique visitors each month. With new content uploaded each day, the platform attracts a dedicated and engaged readership. Readers can contribute too – through the Fanz section, and they can register for online courses designed to improve language and comprehension.
FunDza works with a range of government and nonprofit partners to provide customised offerings for specific projects or programmes. For these FunDza creates custom-solutions for the partner using a blend of its resources, materials, training and/or methodology.
