Hello, I’m Dacod Magagula, one of the 2 founders of FoondaMate.
I went to a school in a rural township school in Mpumalanga, South Africa, that didn’t have resources.
I did not have electricity at home until I was 7. When I got to high school my brother and I decided to save all our Christmas clothes money for a computer, so we could play games. 😅
Past Papers and notes from the internet helped me get good grades in the absence of teachers and text books
My classes had 50-70 students on average. The school did not have text books, and the ones we had were shared among 2 – 3 classmates.
When I was in Grade 12, the computer was very helpful because whenever I got money to buy mobile data I downloaded past papers and any other pdf notes I could find.
This was very helpful, especially for maths and physics because I did not have teachers for most of the year.
