Parents taking on the task of homeschooling during the lockdown, can now access much-needed support from Edufundi via social media; in English, isiZulu and isiXhosa!


South Africa (06 July 2020) – There is an education crisis in South Africa. It was here long before the lockdown but will be much worse when the lockdown has ended. Edufundi, a non-government organisation, has taken up the cause to provide quality education in South Africa by mentoring educators.

“We know that education in South Africa is currently in crisis. Our very committed and experienced team is working to change this so that all of our teachers – and in turn the children they teach – can indeed achieve their full potential.”

With many children having to learn at home, the organisation has come up with a way to continue their efforts. This time with the focus on parents and their homeschooling skills.

Edufundi has launched a four-part homeschooling series during lockdown aimed at giving parents and caregivers easy to use tips on how to make homeschooling more fun, engaging and successful.

The series and tips are based on the programme and book Teach Like a Champion written by Doug Lemov. Each video has been created in English, isiXhosa and isiZulu and comes with accompanying infographics for easy access to parents.

Edufundi is an NGO that offers in-classroom mentorship and support to teachers and school leaders. They work with teachers and school leaders because this is where they believe there is the greatest chance of making a meaningful long-term impact on learning.

The #EdufundiAtHome series was in response to the number of parents navigating homeschooling with their children during the lockdown and becoming teachers overnight. Whilst schools are returning, there are still many parents navigating this so Edufundi hopes that these tips and videos will not only help parents now but also in the near future.

Below are the links to the 4 videos in English. All resources and content in other languages can be found on the website here:
