Steve was 21st Century Learning Fellow at the Shuttleworth Foundation. The focus of his fellowship was the Yoza Project, originally known as m4Lit (mobile phones for literacy), set out to explore the viability of using mobile phones to support reading and writing by youth in South Africa (SA).
At the heart of our co-investment fellowship model is the
principle that Fellows continue to invest in their own
ideas. The Foundation amplifies the Fellow’s investment by
matching it at least tenfold, along with covering the cost of
their time for the year.
The figures you see here do not reflect each Fellow’s
fellowship year funding, but rather the funds unlocked within
each calendar year, as the fellowship years start either March
or September and Fellows are not required to spend the
available funds proportionately throughout the year.

Dear friends, supporters and changemakers. Thank You for visiting.
The Shuttleworth Foundation is now CLOSED for future funding opportunities.
This update is contrary to our previous communications outlining our hopes to stay open until December 2023. We are currently tying up loose ends and establishing legacy artifacts, and will remain contactable through the usual channels until 28th Feb 2023.
While the Foundation is closing down, it will live on through the amazing work achieved by our Fellowship community.
We wish you all well in your efforts to change the world for the better.
