ABOUT FUNDOLINKER

FundoLinker is a student support platform through which primary and secondary schools, tertiary institutions, companies, skilled people and crowd donors are able to work together to provide career guidance, financial help, information and jobs to students.

FundoLinker blends humanity with technology to support students while respecting the dignity, discipline, punctuality and culture of an education community. FundoLinker is inspired by nhimbe and its incredible power is derived from the collaboration, coordination and communication of skills stakeholders. Nhimbe is a word from the Shona people of Zimbabwe referring to the residents in a community working together to help each other in daily life, for example, during harvest time. FundoLinker believes that sufficient quality skills can only be achieved if there is collaboration, coordination and communication among skills stakeholders in tackling skills building challenges.

FundoLinker was founded in January 2016 and is a registered Zimbabwean company.
