Skills to build your dreams

Our impact

There are two challenges with education that we at Funzi aim to solve: We want learning to be accessible to all, and we want learning to be of high quality. Having access to high quality learning for free will allow billions of people all around the world to live happier and more sustainable lives.  

Funzi is designed for young, aspiring adults motivated to learn new skills. Learners are able to customize their learning paths by choosing courses from livelihood and well-being related themes. With this, we at Funzi aim to increase employment, improve lives, and stimulate the growth of local communities and economies.


What challenges do we help solve?


Organizational challenges

Large amounts of resources are required to deliver learning to or upskill your target group. This takes away focus from your core activities.


Funzi offers a complete turnkey SaaS solution. All we need from you is the base learning content and the defined target audience and  learning outcomes – Funzi takes care of the rest.


Individual challenges

The lack of access to quality learning, especially in the Global South, leading to societal issues.


Funzi offers massively scalable (up to millions of learners) access to quality learning through technologies that are widely available and accessible to everyone, also in emerging markets.


Global challenges

Lack of access to learning and the skills required to improve livelihoods, leading to unemployment and challenging life situations.


Funzi offers end-users free access to quality learning with the one device they own and have continuous access to, their mobile phone – with low barrier-of-entry when it comes to cost, technology, language, and learning abilities.

Founder 101 is Funzi's flagship entrepreneurship course to promote inclusive entrepreneurship - for everyone, everywhere, to build the skills and growth mindset to become an entrepreneur, regardless of social, economic, or cultural background. The course delves into entrepreneurship from the different perspectives and roles of an entrepreneur, developing basic skills in product development, innovation, sales, marketing, finance, organization, management, and leadership.

Job-seeking skills are often taken for granted, but really, finding the perfect job is not often that easy. Through the Get that job course, participants learn basic skills related to the job-seeking process, including how to make a CV, fill in an application, prepare for an interview, and conduct yourself on the first days of the job. The course helps in building the right mindset and identifying personal strengths and potential skillsets to take the next steps on one’s career path.

I find it very interesting and helpful. I have learned the things that I never thought of when I was choosing my career. I have learned that it is not only about what you are going to benefit but also the love of what you are doing...

The benefit am achieving from funzi they are cooling my heart like raindrop during dry season. Why should spend a lot of money on drugs rather than on food & exercise from Funzi.

Frankly speaking, you’ve uplifted my spirit. I have this desire to one day open a shop of my own but it seems difficult considering the resources. Thumbs up to your team/site.

Funzi Community and Ambassadors

Alex F101 to

Funzi Communities are online and offline communities of active learners who positively impact their surrounding real-life communities. Funzi mobile learning provides a seed of lifelong learning, and Funzi Communities enable these learners to come together. The online Funzi Community is organized as Facebook group - the aim is to build in more interactivity and peer-to-peer learning in the future.

Funzi Ambassadors are our most engaged users helping to spread Funzi to their communities. Funzi Ambassadors play a major role in building peer-to-peer support networks and face-to-face communities to contribute towards building sustainable societies.

The Funzi Community and Ambassador Program was piloted in Nigeria in 2016, and has run as voluntary grassroots initiatives in multiple African countries. Funzi Ambassadors spread Funzi in their communities on a voluntary basis through two types of tasks: organizing events or facilitating study groups on livelihood and well-being themes.

We welcome Funzi users and anyone interested in being a part of the Funzi Community to join our community group for the latest updates on new developments.
