JustLearn.me is a brand new online platform founded by Uviwe Faku, a young black entrepreneur who is also
an accounting student at the University of Cape Town. This initiative, a first of its kind in South Africa, allows
students and tutors to interact with one another from the comfort and safety of their own homes or any other
The site features real time video streaming that allows students to communicate with, and see, their tutors. It also
includes a white board that supports desktop sharing, enabling both the student and tutor to make notes and upload
learning material. Each lesson can be recorded for a student to refer back to as many times as he/she requires, adding
to the value of their learning experience. There is no need to purchase additional software, with just a computer and
internet connection,the platform is ready to be used.
Through JustLearn.me, inconvenient factors such as costs of travelling and geographic limitations are mitigated.
All tutors undergo strict assessment during the selection process before they are registered to ensure that students are
afforded a quality learning experience.
Learners that cannot afford tutors are not excluded from this initiative. Qualified professionals who are willing to
volunteer their skills and time to underprivileged students at no charge can sign up.
The conceptualisation of JustLearn.me is based upon the idea that everybody has the right to quality education,
through this inclusive platform there is no excuse for anybody to be left out.
