What do we do?

Funda Wande is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to ensure that all learners in South Africa can read for meaning in their home language by the age of 10.

We develop video and print materials to train teachers how to teach reading for meaning in Grades R–3. All our materials are freely available and are Creative Commons licensed, so anyone can use them.

Our courses

The Funda Wande courses will include instruction on all the core components of reading and writing in the Foundation Phase. There are 11 modules, each consisting of 4-9 short videos, accompanying interactive text, and a series of tests and assessments.
