Support homeschoolers in Kenya

Kenyan homeschoolers are concerned that the proposed education law moving through their parliament will prevent them from exercising their right to homeschool their children.

Homeschool leaders in the African country have been told  that members of parliament have raised concerns that homeschooling would be used by negligent and abusive parents to hide from authorities. Lawmakers have also said that they do not wish to spend time on an issue they consider insignificant given the small number of Kenyan homeschooling families.

Leaders of the East Africa Community of Homeschoolers (EACH), one of the few organized homeschool groups on the continent, have asked Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) in the USA for help.

The Association for Homeschooling has also assisted the Kenyan homeschoolers and sent a letter to Kenya High Commission to urge the Kenya parliament to adapt the bill so that the fundamental rights of parents are not affected, and that Kenyan parents will enjoy the same rights as parents in South Africa.

Homeschooling parents in South Africa are encouraged to send letters to Kenya High Commission as well. The email address of the High Commission is This email address is being protected from spambots.

It is important that homeschooling parents in South Africa support this, not only to help parents and children in Kenya, but also because the recognition of homeschooling in Africa will also safeguard homeschooling in South Africa. We also know from experience that letter writing campaigns do make a difference. Read on the website of the Homeschooling Legal Defence Association, how a letter writing campaign by homeschoolers in the USA has contributed towards the recognition of homeschooling in South Africa. Now that homeschooling is recognised here, South African parents should  do the same for homeschoolers in other countries.
