The FunDza Literacy Trust

The FunDza Literacy Trust is a non-profit trust dedicated to growing educated, engaged and empowered young South Africans.

The Little Hands Trust

The Little Hands Trust helps to motivate and nurture reading and writing among children and their care-givers in Africa. We do this by supporting and promoting the development and use of children’s storybooks in South Africa and, where possible, in other parts of Africa too in African languages as well as English, French and Portuguese and Arabic. In support of Nal’ibali, the Little Hands Trust is co-publishing several books for babies and older children which will be donated through the Nal’ibali network of reading clubs.
