Funzi partners with UNDP Syria to deliver mobile learning to vulnerable populations in conflict areas

Funzi and UNDP Syria have signed an agreement to deliver mobile learning to help strengthen the resilience and socio-economic stabilization of individuals and communities in Syria. Conflict in Syria erodes livelihood prospects of Syrians, making access to relevant information and quality learning evermore essential. 

Tools for everyone to grow as a global citizen - Funzi launches SDG 101!

Funzi is launching SDG 101, a mobile learning course to give everyone the skills they need to become a global citizen. With SDG 101 learners will develop knowledge about the SDGs combined with 21st century skills like creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. These skills can then be leveraged as tools to live lives in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals. The course will be available for free to everyone with a connected mobile device.  

Funzi accelerates in Dubai!

This spring Funzi participated in the Dubai Future Accelerators, a unique government-supported accelerator with the mission to imagine, design, and create the future. The second batch of this 9-week program brought together 35 participant companies with government entities that are investing into breakthrough technologies to solve global challenges. The accelerator program brought along new and exciting partnerships that we are now pursuing.

Happy New Year from Funzi!

One of our highlights in 2016 was the discussion on using mobile to build sustainable societies of the future at Slush 2016. Funzi's Chief Evangelist Aape Pohjavirta and UNOPS's Rolando Tomasini were moderated by Member of Finnish Parliament as well as expert on conflicts Pekka Haavisto.

If you didn't make it to Slush and even if you did, check out the inspiring conversation on us all contributing to building a better future!
