Syafunda Foundation

A national learning and bursary placement platform

“If your plan is for 1 year, plant rice – If your plan is for 10 years, plant trees – If your plan is for a 100 years, educate children.” – Confucius


We know that learning needs to be personal. While we want to make education, and quality education, and access to education something that children across the continent are able to experience, we also understand that the lives we are touching are individual lives. These are future scientists, presidents, astronauts, farmers, engineers, entrepreneurs, beauticians, artisans, artists, creators, designers, soccer players, doctors, teachers, policemen and women.

We understand that one size-fits-all does not enable, and so our intention is always to create digital content that counts. That reaches the individual learner where they are at. In their reality. In their own language. In a format that they can relate to and understand. We use examples that makes sense. Things that they can picture. Things that they can imagine. Things that will inspire them to look up and beyond where they find themselves.

At Syafunda we believe that learning is a journey. A pathway to a future of purpose. Of meaning. Of impact.

This is the potential we want to unlock on the continent.
This is the vision that we are committed to.
This is the legacy we want to create.
It is embodied in our name. In our brand essence. In our DNA.

We are Syafunda.
And we are learning.
