The book Steering by the Stars: Being Young in South Africa (ISBN:0624040968) by Dr. Mamphela Ramphele; Zazi Foundation with permission from Dr. Mamphela Ramphele is translating the book into African languages from English. We are currently translating the book into Xhosa, spoken by about 7 million South African citizens. Couple with this is our exciting programme Computers4Kids, here we teach young children from marginalised and rural communities on the use of computers from the age of 5 years old.


Zazi Foundation started out in 2007 as a voluntary organization. It was formed by  a multi disciplinary group of individuals. The founding directors are Lindikaya Ntshinga, Rithuli Orleyn and Phumelele Zonela ka Moti. 

After succesfully completing projects, a decision was made to incorporate Zazi Foundation as a Section 21 NPO. In 2008 Zazi Foundation partnered with Lindro Media to launch the Health Television Channel (health tv) through generous funding from the Western Cape Department of Health. This is a television channel built and maintained by Lindro Media with Zazi Health providing health information and health related content. 

In 2009 we introduced the Education and Heritage business units. See menu tabs for full details.
