Joint Action: Corona Help. The young Kindergarten of Pampa del Infierno in Argentina

News ,  Corona ,  Current news ,  Waldorf worldwide

Pampa del Infierno is a very small town in the north of Argentina. In the middle of the endless grassy landscape some highly committed parents founded the Waldorf Kindergarten, Colmena Azul and also found some kindergarten teachers in the area. The Corona crisis put the young Waldorf initiative to the test. It almost seemed as if the kindergarten would have to close. But fortunately, things turned out differently, as Amelia Bertoldi and Claudio Galvan wrote to us, on behalf of the community of Colmena Azul:

There are no words that can reflect our gratitude for the donation received. Colmena Azul is still a baby and due to this particular situation, has had to live in an unstable present, moving to a future more unpredictable than ever. We always knew it would not be easy to open a Waldorf kindergarten in this area. But we were never afraid of the work because we knew that it would benefit our children. Even in March of 2020 and especially a little later, when the problems became bigger and bigger, we were determined not to give up, even if we saw hardly any prospect of saving our kindergarten.

Prayer and faith that we were not alone was the only way to keep the flame burning, because at that time physical work was not possible. And the answer came; it was magic that helped us economically, that allowed us to survive. Thanks to the funds we received, we were able to continue paying our educators part of their salary and already pay some debts that were due at the beginning of the pandemic. Suddenly, we were saved and our conviction and enthusiasm grew again. This rescue also made us feel seen, understood and supported. The only way to thank you would be to let you feel for a moment what we felt when we received your help. Because it is an incredible mix of sensations that have little to do with the material. It was a breath of life for La Colmena Azul, another "yes" from the spiritual world I response to our efforts to maintain the vessel for Anthroposophy and Waldorf Education in Pampa del Infierno, a place where both are still part of something very new and therefore foreign. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
