Skills to build your dreams

Our Impact

There are two problems with education we would like to solve at Funzi: 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 continue to 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 local economies.

Funzi has courses available in Arabic, Dari, English, Finnish, Somali, Sorani, and Swahili.

Funzi learning themes have been carefully selected in alignment with our vision and mission. Each theme has it’s own very important purpose, and the courses collectively have already benefited over 5 million users!

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 Ambassadors & Communities

Funzi Communities are online and offline ommunities 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. Funzi Communities are currently organized as Facebook groups - the aim is to build in more interactivity and peer-to-peer learning in the future.

Funzi Ambassadors are our most engaged users helping 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 is currently running as voluntary grassroots initiatives in multiple African countries.
