Our mission is to provide education through Waldorf pedagogy integrating the economic, social and cultural diversity for a conscious action in the world”
ince 2006, the Community School JC has worked for the whole development of the children of Peninsula de Maraú, Bahia, Brazil, based on the principles of Waldorf Pedagogy.
The school is a non-profit socio-educational project without owners. It relies 100% on the efforts of the teachers and parents, and on help from donors and sponsors to stay alive.
Currently the school has 104 children in two kindergarten classes and in five elementary grade classes, from first to fifth grades.
Practically half of the population in the Maraú region are illiterate, and most of the children come from families that cannot afford the school fees.
Today only a handful of them are sponsored, so the school’s main challenge is to find people to sponsor them.
We are facing a lot of challenges to maintain this dream alive.
75% of the children come from socio-economically vulnerable families.
But with determination and support from friends and sponsors we are making our way.
