Nina Pacha or light for our time

The Ecuadorean capital of Quito with its indigenous, colonial, and modern elements lies almost at the equator, in the northern Andean highland, which narrowly meanders from north to south. The city extends over 30 kilometers along the highland. It is situated at an altitude of 2.850 meters. It has been home to anthroposophical activities since the 1970s, but to little avail.

In 2006, seven families founded the Waldorf-oriented Nina Pacha School, which is located in the village of Conocoto in an extensive southern side valley. The self-timbered buildings are on a hillside property, and the children climb the slope every morning. That is nothing special, as everybody has to walk up- or downhill all the time.

The teacher training is not easy. There are no partners and the nearest Waldorf schools are a three-day bus trip away, located in Columbia and Peru. It would be great if these colleagues could get the chance to visit a successful Waldorf school and would receive an internal school training, but they are lacking the means.
