JANSEN, C.A.; PRETORIUS, F.J.  and  VAN NIEKERK, E.J.. Education and the role of the church in Africa: Three relevant aspects. Koers (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.74, n.1-2, pp.67-85. ISSN 2304-8557.

In this article an attempt is made to provide a grounded basis for expanded church involvement in the provision of formal education, HIV and AIDS education and leadership education in Africa. This is done on the basis of a fundamental reflection on the role of the church in education, as well as a brief analysis of the formal education challenge, the HIV and AIDS challenge and the leadership challenge in Africa.

Keywords : church and African education; education; HIV and AIDS; education; leadership; formal education in Africa.
