Training for teachers and parents in Kenya

Successful capacity building at Waldorf Kakuma

The "Friends" have been active in Kenya since 2012. Meanwhile, the project has been handed over to local hands and is being continued by Waldorf Kakuma. Currently 1500 children take part in the emergency and trauma pedagogy in Kakuma and Kalobeyei every day. These are led by a team of seven Kenyan teachers and 30 camp residents who have been trained by us. The camp inhabitants have fled from countries such as Southern Sudan, Somalia, Burundi, Congo, and many more to Kenya and have lived there for many years in the refugee camps. Once again this year, the entire team received further training from international emergency pedagogues. In addition to the daily programmes for the children that continue to take place, the teachers are now passing on their knowledge. In afternoon training sessions, they train staff from other NGOs and teachers in the camps and schools in the host communities. There is also room for early childhood education, a point that was not previously the focus of attention in the refugee camps and the communities. The project is funded by UNICEF in cooperation with UNHCR and the local Education Department.

The pictures show, among others, parent training courses in Kalobeyei and Kakuma, some of the employees and teachers as well as the handover of the certificates for the seminar participants.
