How to grow my points

Please see below a step-by-step guide as to how the FUNda Sonke Loyalty Club points system works. As part of this guide we will explain how points are earned and how these become rewards. Also we will explain when you will earn badges, trophies and even certificates! Bonus points are also discussed in this section.

Who can earn points?

You can be a member of the FUNda Sonke Loyalty programme in two ways or as a combination of both.

  • You can participate as an e-learner completing Nal'ibali online courses
  • You can register to be a FUNda leader
  • You can do both! In every case you can earn points and so then rewards.

How it works:-

  • You first need to pledge that you will be participating in a monthly literacy-related activity as a registered FUNda leader on the loyalty programme or register to complete an online learning course - or both.
  • Once you have completed a monthly literacy activity and have met all the requirements of participation, you will be awarded 10 points (Click here to learn more about the specific requirements for completion of your monthly activity, as these may vary month-to-month)
  • Once you have completed a online learning chapter you will be awarded a badge on your profile and earn 5 points . (Click here to see where these will show)
  • Once you have completed a online learning course you will be awarded a trophy on your profile and be able to download a certificate of course completion. You will also earn 10 points for course completion. (Click here to see where these will show).
  • Once you have completed a Nal'ibali survey or quiz you will earn 10 points.

Bonus points can be earned in the following ways

  • You can earn 5 bonus points for participating on the FUNda Sonke Loyalty Programme Chat Corner
  • You can earn 5 bonus points for posting on Twitter using the #NALIBALI and taking about what being a FUNda leader or learning online with Nal'ibali.
  • You can earn 5 bonus points for every friend you refer to Nal'ibali FUNda Sonke Loyalty programme and who successfully registers to as either a FUNda leader or e-learner.

How do I get rewards on my profile?

  • Your points profile will be updated on a weekly basis with points earned during the week consolidated on a Friday afternoon at 3pm. Your updated scoreboard will appear on your profile by 9am on a Monday morning. Please note: any points earned after 3pm on a Friday will only reflect on your scoreboard in the weekly following (i.e. not on the very next Monday).
  • On the last Friday on each month all FUNda Sonke Loyalty programme member points will be consolidated and the overall programme leaderboard updated to reflect the point earned in total by each member during that month. This leaderboard also shows how each member ranks against the others.
  • On the last Friday on each month all FUNda Sonke Loyalty programme member points will be consolidated and the overall programme leaderboard updated to reflect the point earned in total by each member during that month. This leaderboard also shows how each member ranks against the others.

We have 3 levels to our reward system: rewards given every 2 months; rewards given every quarter (4 months) and one large annual reward. How this works:-

  •  Every second month we will randomly select active and participating FUNda Sonke Loyalty program members to send them "spot rewards" of items such as children’s books, snacks or other other such items.
  •  At the end of every quarter (every 4 months) all points accumulated over previous four months will be totalled. Based on your position on the overall leaderboard and number of points you have accumulated you will be awarded with an appropriate reward in vouchers or airtime. This reward will be sent to you electronically
  • At the end of the year all members who ranked in the top ten of any given month will be put into a lucky draw to win a grand prize.
  • Details of the grand prize selection date and the actual prize will be communicated nearer the time.

What are the rewards?

Rewards vary from spot prizes of books and snacks, to airtime vouchers to a larger annual grand prize - the nature of which will be disclosed nearer to the time.

What is the minimum and maximum points I could earn in a month?

If you don't pledge or participate in any activity in a given month you will earn 0 points. However if you participate in a very limited way you could earn a minimum of 5 points. If however you are very engaged and participate very actively you could earn a maximum of 70 points in a given month.

How do points translate into Rand value?

There is a 1-to-1 relationship of points to Rands earned. However the value of the voucher or the airtime issued by Nal'ibali is of their sole discretion. Typically however reward values will be equivalent to points earned, and in some instances may in fact be larger than points value
