We love this Chattalogue concept! Birthed by a group of volunteers working on Year Beyond, an afterschool programme running in the Western Cape, the Chattalogues concept was entered into the 2018 Social Innovation Challenge, and it came out tops, with a grant to test the idea. FunDza was asked to help manage the project. And, we’re so happy to help!
Chattalogues are short scripts designed to be read for fun by high school learners. FunDza has worked with the original Chattalogues team, and freelance writers and editors to produce this special series of scripts. They are being piloted with High School students at present. But you don’t have to be part of a programme (or even a high school student) to enjoy the scripts… there is something good for everyone. Try them out now!
