After a devastating earthquake with the magnitude of 7.0 on the Richter scale hit Haiti, a land which struggles with poverty and war, on January 12th 2010, the emergency-pedagogic team of the Friends of Waldorf Education carried out two interventions in the troubled area. While the first emergency-pedagogic crisis-intervention in February 2010 mainly focused on the psycho-social stabilization of children and adolescents affected by the earthquake, the follow-up assignment in May 2010 focused on the advanced training and supervision of the pedagogues on site.

In cooperation with the German NGO Kindernothilfe and the Haitian NGO Acrederp, two Child Friendly Spaces were built in Leogane and Mariannie. 450 children received pedagogical support in the two Child Friendly Spaces for an extended time. In the context of this cooperation, 30 teachers were employed to continue the pedagogical work on site.
