The African Way Regenerative Education Program was developed in accordance with the Sustainable Development Goal "Quality Education" - SDG 4 of the UN.
Hybrid education and learning ecosystem developed to complement formal education, the organization and governance of informal education based on the Spirit of Ndanifor hands-on learning by doing concept; building equitable and inclusive educational ecosystems.
We explore the place of hands-on education, volunteering, internships and apprenticeships in wider society for strengthening common ethics and values in education for future generations.
The main objective of this program is to create a hybrid education and learning ecosystem for sustainable development, that is equitable and inclusive, which fosters the co-construction of knowledge and of pedagogical communities through trust-based relationships between the Global South and the Global North, with emphasis on the relationships established through the youth and women, based on the Spirit of Ndanifor’s learning-by-doing concept.
