Following the recent trade mission to South Africa, One Awards has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Funda Trust to act as their education advisor and accreditation partner for a project to be delivered in South Africa to raise educational standards of teachers and teaching in the rural communities and townships.
Funda Trust is a non-profit organisation registered in the United Kingdom. The organisation’s purpose is to assist with the enhancement of the South African Education system by working with the government to identify areas that need intervention. The Trust has the capability to provide teacher professional and personal development training in core curriculum subjects, physical, and creative education.
