Since 1976 we promote Waldorf education around the globe. Thus far we have been able to support more than 830 Waldorf initiatives worldwide. Each year 1.800 young people commit to a voluntary service and by the worldwide student campaign WOW-Day children get enabled to go to school. All our donations are forwarded at 100 %. Furthermore, our Emergency pedagogic interventions are addressed at psychologically traumatized children and adolescents in war zones and disaster areas.
What we do
We forward 100% of all donations. Up to date we were able to support more than 830 projects.
Every year more than 1,800 young people do their voluntary service with us at home and abroad.
Since 2006 we have been working in the field of emergency pedagogy with traumatized children from many different countries.
WOW-Day is an international student campaign to collect donations for children around the globe.
Ukraine: Fleeing the war
The Friends of Waldorf Education is preparing a series of actions to help traumatised, frightened refugees on the borders of Ukraine, as well as those who remain in Ukraine.
In view of the massive attacks on Ukraine and the resulting refugee and danger situation for the people, the Friends of Waldorf Education will implement three projects in particular: aid for Waldorf educational institutions, the finding of accommodation and school places and emergency educational missions at the borders and in Ukraine.

Emergency Pedagogy - First Aid for the Soul
Trauma pedagogical acute help in crises and disaster prevention
The emergency pedagogy of the "friends" has been helping traumatised children and young people processing their experiences since 2006. The missions on the entire world are supplemented by national and international Seminars. They are an important part of disaster preparedness and at the same time, build the network of global crisis intervention teams.
Since 1976 the Friends of Waldorf Education have been supporting Waldorf educational institutions all around the world.
We are committed to Waldorf Schools, Waldorf Kindergartens as well as curative education and social therapy institutions that urgently need support. Learn more about initiatives currently seeking financial assistance.
