Moving to another country is a move that is both exciting and testing for a family. Edufax has been at the forefront of education solutions for relocating families since 1992 and has helped thousands of families and dozens of multinationals make considered choices on children’s education and education-related policies.
How it all began
It is 1992, and global mobility is increasing around the world. Companies are expanding their reach; ambitious employees are looking for exciting opportunities abroad and taking their families with them to embark on this adventure together.
Thousands of Dutch children became “expat” children experiencing a time away from the local school and language in the Netherlands. After their return, things were not the same and reintegration came with challenges.
Peter Zuidema came up with the idea of faxing teaching materials to children abroad (edufax), so they could keep up with the Dutch language, and in turn, reintegrate more easily into the Dutch education system later on.
