AFRICAN HOME EDUCATION  INDABA  2019

1st AFRICAN CONFERENCE HOSTED IN PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA, ON 17 – 19 OCTOBER 2019

 

 

ABOUT CONFERENCE

The African Home Education Conference is an initiative of the Global Home Education Exchange (GHEX). Our mission as GHEX Africa subcommittee is to advance, connect, and equip the Africa home education community in exercising the right to home educate.

The ability to choose home education is a right which is well-documented in international law.  Parents have the right to direct the education of their children and each child has the right to receive an individualized education that best suits their needs and goals.

This concept cuts across cultures, methods, and beliefs. It exists regardless of motivation or methodology in home education. The GHEX Africa are working to connect and inform the Africa home education community — from policy makers to home education organizations, leaders, and families, through the use of technology, exchange of information and this continental conference.
