Mission

Edu Fun is a volunteer-led, non-profit Public Benefit Organisation. We partner with the Diepsloot Combined School (DCS) located in the informal settlement of Diepsloot, Johannesburg, South Africa. Our mission is to improve English literacy for Grade 2 and 3 students. We also mend school uniforms, do health checks for students and provide support and financial assistance for learners from Diepsloot going on to University. In addition, Edu Fun is evolving to include students from non-fee paying schools in rural, urban and informal settlements outside of Diepsloot to address the varied educational, literacy and material needs of the population.
