Learn New Skills To Impact Your Community With TechSoup Courses – Online Training and Education for Nonprofits and Libraries In Southern Africa


It only takes a few minutes to learn a new skill. TechSoup Courses offers beginner to advanced courses on essential nonprofit digital skills. For example, learn how to share your organisation’s story with PowerPoint, analyze data in Excel, and succeed in remote work. Lessons consist of short videos and practice exercises that you can do at your own pace.   

We have partnered with TechSoup USA and TechSoup Kenya to provide Nonprofit Organisations and Libraries in Southern Africa access to the eLearning range of TechSoup Courses.

TechSoup’s Course content is designed specifically for staff at nonprofit organisations and libraries. We work with subject matter experts who also have deep experience with nonprofits. Our courses are developed in-house by TechSoup’s own instructional design team in partnership with experts who understand how nonprofits and libraries use these skills. We use modern adult learning methodologies that include nonprofit-specific examples and exercises. Some courses are offered free of charge and other range between R300-00 and R1000-00 (prices are listed in dollars on the global eLearning platform).

Course fees are non-refundable and you gain TechPoints by accessing and interacting with course content such as watching a video, completing an evaluation and clicking on links. Each course requires you to earn  TechPoints to access your course certification.

Courses are currently in English and Portuguese, with more languages coming soon. Build your career skills and contribute new ways for your organisation to accomplish its mission with TechSoup Courses.
