Half a decade with Funzi

Hi Funzi friends, here’s your update on the latest Funzi training programs, the impact we’ve been able to make in people’s lives around the world, and the story behind how Funzi all began.

The story behind Funzi

Eat, Drink & Be Thankful.png

Funzi was founded in 2014 by five individuals with a big dream. Crazy dreams? Yes! But as you know, nothing awesome ever comes from fearing failure! And if we don’t do this, then who will? Although, this is not to say that our journey hasn’t been an arduous one. So in celebration of our 5th birthday, we want to share with you our story.

Customer service training to sales representatives

We’re happy to announce that we’re working with EKAMI vocational school and college and Cursor Ltd to deliver customer service training to sales staff and customer service representatives. Due to the varying education background of the learners, and to keep the barrier of learning low, the course is offered in 4 different languages.

Upon completing the course, learners will understand the skills needed for good customer service, the customer service process, and how to serve customers of various cultural backgrounds. Stay tuned for results in summer 2019.

Do you have a need to train customer service?

Funzi helps everyone get a job with our 'Get that job' course

Our commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals is and has always been at the core of our work. To help eradicate poverty, achieve economic growth, and ensure that everyone has decent work, we first created the Get that job mobile course in 2015 to guide learners in identifying their professional skills and help them navigate the job-seeking process. This year, we made a big upgrade to the course featuring a certificate of completion as requested by our users, more fun and practical information and tasks to help learners develop a growth mindset, and raise their value as an employee!
