Freunde der Erziehungskunst Rudolf Steiners

We are in deep admiration for the work of “Die Freunde” (“Friends of the Art of Education”) as often referred to in Germany ( They support and promote Waldorf and Curative Education Initiatives in all parts of the world. So far, 227 Waldorf schools in 20 European countries have participated in yearly WOW-Days (Waldorf One World), collecting € 1,186,893 for children in 9 different countries.

The Centre for Creative Education

The Waldorf Teacher Training program as well as the Eurythmy Training Course are fully state-accredited, offering students a Bachelors degree upon completion. Many students are enrolled in and have completed over the years their Childhood Practitioner Training. The Centre has also held Distant Learning Modules in Kenya for some 50 teachers and kinder-garten teachers from Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.

An extension of the work in East Africa is needed:
