The FunDza Literacy Trust is focused on improving literacy in South Africa by creating engaging reading material and connecting young people to easy-to-access, exciting stories that encourage critical thinking and discussion.

FunDza harnesses the power of technology to scale its impact by providing readers with access to interesting local content via their mobile phones at low or no cost. The organization’s “library on a phone” is designed to get teens and young adults reading both fiction and non-fiction daily.

FunDza is focusing on increasing the adoption of its program by mobile users and developing a robust online reading curriculum service.
