Who We Are

We are here not for income, but for outcome

Isifundo is a computer literacy training organisation started in August 2013 by Rhyn Potgieter and Neville Van Deutekom. Since our inception we have trained roughly 50 people, a few of whom have been able to acquire jobs. The training provided has given many of our students confidence and hope for a brighter future. We are also pleased to say that a number of our students have become teachers within our training centres.

Our Vision

Our aim is to establish a strong network of community-owned digital training hubs in underprivileged areas that will provide quality education and mentorship.

Our Mission

We will achieve this by facilitating essential digital literacy training programmes that teach people valuable skills from which they can earn an income.

 

Our History

Helping others is not a job, it is a calling

  • Where It All Began

    We humbly started with our first class in August 2013 with 2 laptops

  • Every Single Student Counts

    We started teaching students from surroundingunderprivileged areas including Cosmo City, Diepsloot, and Thembisa

  • So Much More to Achieve

    We plan to grow our computer literacy schools to many more underprivileged communities.

  • Setup our 1st classroom

    We successfully built a computer literacy training classroom at Gracepoint in Midrand.

  • The Big Movement

    One of our first students found a new job! Why? Because he knew how to use the Internet!

  • Second classroom setup!

    We successfully setup a second classroom at Lesedi where is 90% unemployment.

Our Team

These wonderful people make it all possible
