Help a child go to school

In many countries Waldorf schools receive little or no government support. We arrange sponsorships in the sense of educational vouchers. Our approach is an agreement with the local school that education sponsorship donations will benefit children and classes whose families cannot afford the school fees on their own. Find out more about our sponsorships for school classes and children.

Kenia, Rudolf Steiner School Mbagathi

Class 3

The class three comprises of twenty-seven lovely and energetic learners. The learners are a joyful lot who love school a lot. Most of them are easy to socialize with and they have cultivated a good relationship amongst themselves and also with the teachers. All learners in class three are very interesting since they are gifted differently.There are several subjects that the learners get a chance to learn.  First and fore most we have blocks that they are taken through. There is the math block, English block and the form drawing block in the classroom. There is farming block where the learners go to the farm to prepare, plant and take care of plants. There is also building block where they learn about different house structures from different cultures from within our country and from outside. The pupils also get a chance to learn other subjects like music, painting, Games, Dance, Handwork and class gardening. These help them to develop their artistic capabilities. In the English block the learners are told the creation stories from the bible and also from traditional African communities. They are further introduced to the parts of speech artistically. Then they are helped to do their own writing and making their own readers. The learners love games, Dance and music lessons. During the last year some class threes had the opportunity to participate in a play that was showcased in the East Africa Anthroposophical conference in our school. The same passion in acting was seen in the class play later towards the end of the year. Most learners in my class need material and moral support to ensure that their learning is smooth.

Zenzeleni Waldorf School in South Africa

Class 2

In a township area where communities are plagued with poverty and crime Zenzeleni is an oasis where children play freely and learn in a way that allows them to be the best they can be. The word “Zenzeleni” means “do it yourself”. Lessons are taught in a way that keeps children actively engaged and they learn through their hearts, hands and heads. Zenzeleni makes a real difference in the lives of children – they develop a close relationship with their teachers and each other and are encouraged to be curious about the world and their place and role in it.  Most of the children come from our kindergarten. The children love singing, especially action songs. They also enjoy free play. They still find sitting down and concentrating hard. The students are taught in their mother tongue IsiXhosa as well as English. Their main subjects include Form Drawing, learning the letters (alphabets), arts and crafts. Most of these are taught through stories and they love recalling the stories in their own words. Highlights of the year for the children include their educational outing to Butterfly World in Stellenbosch. The school also takes part in a recycling show where each class works with different recyclable materials to create different crafts. The Class 1 will be working with plastic bottle caps. All the final projects will be on view at the final show. The children also really look forward to our annual 5km fundraising walk. I am very happy with this group of eager children. Having just taught the Class 7s last year, it has been quite an adjustment, but I am enjoying every moment of this experience and look forward to this year with them.
