It is our firm belief that parents are and should be the first educators of their children. That is why we homeschool our children. However, we know that homeschooling is not an option for many parents and neither is finding the time to create materials or curricula. We hope that our classes will help to lighten your load and make it easier for you to teach your children their African history.
