Why did you do this?

Currently the majority of students in South Africa do not have access to WiFi or mobile data. As a result most students cannot download study notes or past papers, and cannot look things up on the internet if they are confused. This is a massive problem because when many schools cannot afford printers, let alone cover the cost of printing study material for students, and few schools have enough textbooks to give each student a copy.

The good news is most students have access to a smartphone and most cellphone networks allow free WhatsApp and Messenger use. This means WhatsApp and Messenger Chatbots can help solve these problems.

FoondaMate makes education accessible to those who might have no other means of getting study material.

FoondaMate is here for equal access to education.
