Since its inception in 1992, the Association for Homeschooling has promoted the recognition of the right of parents to educate their children within the family in South Africa, as it is recognised in art. 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Right which states: “Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.” Since 2010, the Association also promotes these parental rights in the larger Southern Africa region.

The Association achieves it’s mission through the following initiatives:

  1. Interacting with government and the media to promote the rights of parents (See the letters of the Association under the “Media” tab of the website).

  2. Informing parents about home education by providing documents that are available on the website. See the “Getting Started”, “Legal” and “Matric” tabs on the website.

  3. Keeping the homeschooling community informed on current affairs related to home education by means of the Blog on the website, a Facebook page a Twitter feed and a Youtube channel.

  4. Bringing homeschooling parents and the suppliers of educational products and services in contact with each other by providing an advertising facility. See the “Curriculums etc.” and “Events” tabs on the website.

  5. Bringing homeschooling parents in contact with other homeschooling parents. See the “Support” tab on the website.

  6. Keeping suppliers of educational products and services by maintaining and mailing list of educational suppliers and distributing a newsletter about marketing opportunities and regulatory developments to these suppliers.

The website www.sahomeschoolers.org went live in Jan. 2011 and has since then been established as the most comprehensive website on homeschooling in South Africa. Sometimes it receives more than 10 000 visits in one month. A journalist from Fair Lady that wrote an article on homeschooling said the following about the website : "...so many people recommended the SA Homeschoolers website that I’ve included it in the piece as a trusted resource for people wanting more information."
