Reflections on Africa’s Indigenous knowledge on parenting

Indigenous knowledge of parenting.pdf

The publication  by PAN presents snapshots of indigenous parenting practices of different communities in Africa. 

Africa is blessed with diverse cultures and tribes, these rich traditions play a critical part in shaping the lives of communities and the family unit.

Indigenous positive parenting practices in Africa are under threat because of modernisation. People are moving to the cities, and the close community, and family ties of the past, is under pressure. In this Brochure, you see highlight, how the pastoralist community of the Gabra and the Maasai people in Kenya, East and the horn of Africa region; Bozo community in Mali, West Africa; Ndebele of South Africa, and the Swahili of the coastal strip of Africa parented.
