About this website

This is a sharing platform, dedicated to the exchange of knowledge about education and education rights across the African continent. We hope it will be used as a resource for civil society organisations, legal practitioners, researchers, academics, activists, business people, advocacy managers and development workers to access documents, make links to relevant partner organisations, and share insights on our EduInfoAfrica homepage.
