Benjamin Disraeli once said, “There is no education like adversity.” He could not have known of the profundity that this statement would have almost two centuries later, but it certainly has some significance as education professionals around the world navigate a new normal through this COVID-19 pandemic.
As part of our mandate to support international schools and educators across Africa, AISA has created a dedicated COVID-19 Support Portal to assist our members through this time of adversity and beyond.
Since the launch of the AISA COVID-19 Support Portal on 2 April 2020, its value has already been proven, with almost 1000 education professionals visiting the site to access valuable resources, current news and information and enjoy the community interaction it facilitates.
The site includes a number of useful features, including:
However, like so many of AISA’s initiatives and programmes, this portal’s real value is amplified by the engagement and contribution of our members, partners and associates. We are so grateful for the many supporters and contributors who have added to the wealth of information and resources this portal offers.
We invite you to become active participants and users of the portal and help us realise its full potential.
The Association of International Schools in Africa is dedicated to serving its members throughout Africa during this challenging time. Please let us know if you require additional or specific information, resources and or support, and we will endeavour to assist you as soon as possible.
