The FunDza Literacy Trust

“Only 8% of schools in South Africa have libraries, and books are expensive and often difficult to find. FunDza aims to boost literacy among teens and young adults in South Africa by popularising reading; growing communities of readers; and, developing young writing talent.

FunDza achieves this by providing content that will get young people hooked on reading. Our books and stories are exciting, relevant and authentically South African. In addition, FunDza leverages the powerful reach of mobile technology to connect and interact with readers in innovative ways. Cellphones (largely feature phones) are pervasive in South Africa. Almost everyone has access to one.”
