I wanted a name for my blog that meant something...
I thought of things having to do with being a woman, with female empowerment, but nothing seemed right.
Then I thought about my son, he is the most important thing to me, and since we are unschoolers, something that has to do with learning seemed most appropriate. So...


It is a Swahili (Kiswahili) word meaning "to learn on one's own." How perfect! I mean really, all learning takes place "on one's own." Sure, I can help my son by providing opportunities, taking him cool places, "strewing" things in his path, but ultimately it is HE who does the actual learning! So Jifundisha it is.
