Friends of Waldorf Education
Friends of Waldorf Education (Freunde der Erziehungskunst Rudolf Steiners e.V.) support initiatives for independent education world-wide. We have actively promoted Waldorf education and freedom within the education system since 1971. We support Waldorf kindergartens, Waldorf schools, other educational initiatives, curative education and social therapeutic institutions as well social work projects.
Helping in the world and coming back full of impressions... Our office in Karlsruhe is organising voluntary service programs with around 30 co-workers. More than 500 young people per year are sent to remedial educationa institutions, Waldorf Schools and Kindergartens in other countries and learn much about the other cultures, other people and themselves!
Helping where harm is incredible - after war and natural disasters. Due to voluntary coworkers we can help traumatised children with emergency education. Since 2006 we had deployments in Lebanon, China, Gaza, Indonesia and Haiti. Please help us to help!
