Welcome to the Home Page of AfricaEducation.

This is the site where you'll find out most of what is happening in the area of Education in Africa and Development in Africa.

We recommend you first run a search on this site for information on your topic of interest.

After that, you may want to see if there is anything in the African Digital Library®, a free public library that contains more than 8000 full-text books for you to use on the Internet, if you live in Africa.

The African Virtual University's library contains around 2400 journals, which are free and could be of help. The COL Knowledge Finder is an index of about one million of the most significant documents on education and development. Access to online library collections, full-text books, catalogues, books and journals can be found on the Online Libraries or Books And Journals pages. Open Education Resources and Open Source Software can be found in the Open Courseware and Open Source sections.

The Learning Materials and Resources sections of this site include links to curriculum content that may help you. If you are looking for information on how to fund your studies, the Bursaries page may provide useful information.

Education-related projects we are aware of are listed under Projects. School teachers and learners can go to our School Project page. Teachers can find useful tools and lesson plans under Teachers' Resources.

Conferences and Events taking place in Africa, related to education and development, are listed on the Conferences page.

For how to create websites free of charge, please consult the Free Internet Services links.

Please let us have links to your organisation's or project's website if it is relevant to Education in Africa or Development in Africa.
