Nepal 2016-2018

The severe earthquake of 25th April 2015 brought death and destruction to Nepal. This is an experience that leaves deep spiritual traces, especially in children.  The aim of the Friends of Waldorf Education is to support these traumatized children in the processing of their experiences.

"Such a catastrophe shocks the child's view of the world and can trigger post-traumatic stress reactions," explains Bernd Ruf, managing director of the Friends of Waldorf Education. "The child literally loses the ground under his feet and trust in stability. Suddenly it has to deal with fear, injury, death and the destruction of its surroundings. With emergency pedagogical methods, we can stabilise these children and thus prevent trauma follow-up disorders."
