Our mission is to accelerate science learning in Africa and our vision is to see Africa transformed through science.
We are working to improve science learning and provide skills training for one million African children and youth by 2030.
Fundi Bots use two main learning experiences which provide practical, hands-on training for students in everything from building robots and coding to project-based learning experiences built on top of the official government curriculum.
The Fundi Bots STEM/Robotics training provides extra-curricular learning experiences that augment classroom lessons and provide skills-based learning outcomes beyond academic performance to prepare students for life beyond school.
The Fundi Bots Enhanced Science curriculum is embedded directly into the national curriculum, supporting learning implementation and outcomes from an academic perspective. It also provides pedagogy and skills training for teachers of science.
Fundi Bots works through three main pillars that are a reflection of how, where and when we carry out our interventions. In addition, the Fundi Girls program runs as a stand-alone model that also weaves through all the work that we do at Fundi Bots.
