Gavin Weale Advisor at Syafunda Education Project

South Africa needs more dedicated and driven young social entrepreneurs like Zakheni who are trying to tackle the most urgent societal challenges: namely, education. He deserves the support of funders and practitioners alike, and I'm certain is on his way to becoming someone who will make a serious difference to thousands of lives.

This a very great initiative, South Africa is in desperate need of projects that help tackle the problems we have around education.

An innovative and accessible way to promote quality education in South Africa. The founders are passionate, incredibly hard working and committed to using mobile technology to educate young South Africans.

Andy Walshe Advisor at Syafunda Education Project

Syafunda sits at the core of an idea towards helping individuals realize their full potential. Education of the next generation is a critical step towards solving our greatest challenges as a race and its importance cannot be underestimated. This project will make a significant and measurable difference to the youth of South Africa and I cannot endorse it highly enough!!!!!

Jayaseelan Naidoo Advisor at Syafunda Education Project

The Syafunda Education Project is innovative in their approach towards bolstering and improving the level of knowledge amongst our learners. They have the passion, zest, drive and willing to make a difference to the lives of our learners and the country as a whole. It is not just the motivation that drive this amazing team but their discipline to achieve and keep growing.

Ganief Manuel

Syafunda is adopting a creative approach to the current issues not just faced by our youth, but as South Africans. Zakheni and his team is passionate about growing and developing people, and their work has the potential to positively change and contribute to the educational foundations of all young South Africans. They are not reinventing the wheel, but they are brave enough to be resilient with a fresh approach, and bringing about change in the lives of those students they reach. With the new curriculum our public schools are on, each lesson is pre-planned and the teacher cannot go back to help students understand, there is simply no time. If you do not have the time nor energy to make a difference, help them help our children, our country, your future.

This is one of the most exciting projects out there, focused on tackling education of our youth in a very innovative way. I don't know of another project or programme that takes high quality education to learners from low-resource schools quite like this.

Ian Calvert Advisor at Syafunda Education Project

Syafunda aims to address one of South Africa's most fundamental problems - the education of our future generations. It is a brilliantly simple idea that will make a huge impact. Zakheni and Khulile are entrepreneurs with great integrity and enthusiasm, and I have no hesitation in recommending them highly. They and the project deserve every success.
