Liz Gitonga and her husband Patrice begun homeschooling about 17 years ago, becoming one of the pioneer Kenyan homeschool families. Liz has a great passion for education and describes her homeschooling journey as one that has been pivotal in shaping her views on education. She co-founded one of the first homeschool co-ops for Kenyans and has subsequently founded 2 other co-ops that continue to grow strong. She is a steering committee member of the East Africa Community of Homeschoolers (EACH), an organization that networks homeschoolers in the region. She is also an education consultant, providing training and guidance to homeschoolers, parents, and other educators. Her passion is to use her skill, knowledge, and experience to contribute to the attainment of quality education among those living below the poverty line in sub-Saharan Africa (who form about 70% of the total population), through initiatives that promote direct parental involvement in education.
Liz holds a Master’s degree in Education Psychology. They are blessed with 3 children, Gloria(20), Josiah(15).
