As we enter this holiday season, a time of thanks and blessing for so many people around the world, I would like to share with you information about two very special projects which strive to bring peace and understanding to children and teens under very challenging circumstances. Both of these places are Waldorf inspired and are wonderful examples of the healing potential which Waldorf education can bring not only to individuals, but to whole communities.
The first is the Salaam Shalom Educational Foundation in Israel [now called reGeneration]. Its mission is to foster peace and understanding between Arab and Jewish teens. Please visit their website to find out about the wonderful work they are achieving.
Second, we have Escuela Caracol, a Waldorf initiative in Guatemala. They have a Holiday Wish list on their website – perhaps some of you could help them out!
So many of us have experienced the benefits of Waldorf education to our children – won’t you consider supporting those who are bringing Waldorf to children in the most difficult of life circumstances? Just think how Waldorf can help teens heal and make human connections despite the war and horror of life in Israel/Palestine. And just think how wonderful it is that people are striving to bring Waldorf education to children in some of the poorest communities in Central America.
Blessings to you and your family during this Holiday Season!
