FunDza Large RGBThe FunDza Literacy Trust has the social objective of getting young South Africans reading and writing for pleasure. Through this it boosts literacy levels, particularly among low-income teens and young adults.

Low levels of literacy inhibit the professional and economic potential in South Africa. In addition, stories are powerful and provide readers with insight, awareness of the world around them, and can inspire hope. The FunDza team is dedicated to spreading a love of reading and a culture of story-telling. Through this they contribute towards growing an active and empowered citizenry.
