Kindergarten founded in Nanyuki: our project of the month

Nanyuki is a small town at the foot of Mount Kenya, established by the British in the early 20th century. They came because of the altitude - the city lies almost 2,000 m above sea level – and because of the very pleasant and attractive climate. Today, as then, many members of the military, then the British, now the Kenyan military, live there. For just over a year now some mothers and the Waldorf Kindergarten teacher Silviah Njagi have been setting up a Waldorf Kindergarten. The foundation of a new Waldorf School is to follow this year.
