This platform has done an outstanding job thus far and has grown.

This is how they work...



Feenix believes that education should not solely rely on wealth, as it is a platform that is committed to breaking down the digital barriers that exist so that everyone has equal opportunities for growth.

Established as a crowdfunding platform in response to #feesmusfall in 2015 and 2016, the platform has helped many students secure funding. 

“We wanted to be part of the solution when we realized that there weren't enough resources sitting with the government in order to make free education a reality,” said Feenix student engagement manager, Kathy Jean Peterson.

This tech crowdfunding platform connects students who need funds and donors that want to pay it foward.
