Steiner/Waldorf schools change the world

The first Waldorf school was founded in Stuttgart in 1919. Today there are over 1,100 Waldorf schools and almost 2,000 Waldorf kindergartens in some 80 countries around the globe.

    You can talk about Waldorf school and think what you want. I am happy to have enjoyed exactly this education and to have learned such different things.

    So then, what was school for me? What was it that accompanied, supported and promoted me for 13 years?

    I think it was the opportunity to develop as an individual and without any pressure. When I talk to my friends from back then - who by the way are still my friends today - about our school days,...

In the meantime, she must be around 90 and had spontaneously grabbed the phone...

All those special people who change the world?" I then always feel that first of all I have this obligation, this burden, to be special. Until now, however, I...

The Waldorf approach has many characteristics that shape the learning and development of children in a special way. I am...

Support us

Many projects, especially in countries where Steiner/Waldorf facilities have scarce financial resources, cannot be realized without financial support. Donating a small sum is not painful for most of us. But it can do others an immense amount of good. We would be delighted to receive a €5 donation. Or more, of course. This button leads you to the donation form, where you can select your desired amount and your preferred payment method.

In order to make your donation as easy as possible, we work together with, like Waldorf 2019 e.V. a non-profit organization. Therefore, in addition to your donation for Waldorf 100, you will also be asked for a contribution to the operation of the platform, which you can freely choose from 0 – X €.
