The greatest resource in any school is its teachers;
to invest in teacher development is to invest in the future of our country.

Edufundi is a non-profit organisation that provides structured in-classroom mentorship and support to teachers and leadership teams in under-resourced primary schools across South Africa. We have been in existence since 1998, with the continued aim of improving educational outcomes for previously disadvantaged learners.

OUR FOCUS

Building teachers’ capacity to make everyday teaching and learning more effective.

Partnering with educators and school leaders in a way that offers practical and sustainable solutions to their specific challenges has proven to make a real, measurable and concrete difference to learner achievement.
