Our impact

There are two challenges with education that we atFunzi 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.

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.

Funzi Ambassadors and Communities

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. Funzi Communities are 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 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 is currently running as voluntary grassroots initiatives in multiple African countries.
