Focusing on both primary and post-primary learners, Fundi Bots currently has two regional offices – one in the eastern region and the other in the central part of Uganda. According to Benge, after establishing themselves in Gulu, they will also build another branch in the western region.

In a Twitter thread, revealing the development, Solomon Benge did not disclose the amount Fundi Bots will be getting nor did he say which company was offering the money. He only said the funds will be used for projects that will be executed in the next 12 months.

On its website, Fundi Bots shows that is currently being supported by four companies and they have used the support to promote STEM education in 75 schools, reaching more than 4000 students.

The curriculum offered by Fundi Bots is more learner-centered and learners can be taught either from home or in schools. Teachers in schools are also taught how to use the robots developed by Fundi in learning.
