Nigeria Country Unit
A very special thank you to our two incredible consultants: Tomi Olatunde from @thecuddleblog is a leader in the homeschooling community in Lagos, Nigeria. She also runs @homeschoolingconversations which organizes an annual homeschooling conference to raise awareness about homeschooling in Africa.
Our second consultant, Adesola @raising.id owns a community centre in Abuja focused on play-based learning for pre-schoolers and homeschoolers. She relocated from the UK to Nigeria and started family meet-ups when she couldn’t find any to attend. The community now has 300+ families. All are welcome to join!
We were so honored to partner with two wonderful community leaders.
