Building a reading nation
Fundza promotes literacy and the love of reading in Swaziland’s schools. The word Fundza is a SiSwati word meaning “to learn” or “to read” depending on the context. Fundza’s mission is to raise the literacy rate and promote life-long learning among Swazi children. Fundza is a non-governmental organisation working to increase literacy rates by making information and library services available to primary and high schools. Fundza trains teachers in library management and in methods to improve literacy. In addition, Fundza provides and promotes HIV/AIDS materials, runs annual school debate competitions and trains other NGOs on how to manage their Information Resource Centers.
