Education and training

Skills development

The project refers mainly to Education and its main objective is to facilitate an intercultural education to the children of the school through contact with people from other countries.
It is important for us what our project offers to volunteers and also to our team, very different experiences on a personal level.

Asociación Escuela Libre La Casa del Sol

In 1989, a group of parents and friends of this pedagogy began to form in Gran Canaria who, out of concern for the education of their children, found in Waldorf Pedagogy the right answers to understand and put into practice the maturing process of children, young people and human beings in general.

From that moment on, conferences, courses, exhibitions, artistic and manual activities, playgroups, etc. were set up, all of which were to lay the foundations for the birth of "La Casa del Sol".


Pasaje del Roble, 19

This contributes to the volunteers, with the team every year, through waldorf pedagogy, to see themselves through the children in a simple, routine day-to-day, doing simple tasks from sweeping, scrubbing, preparing breakfast with the children until more artistic tasks such as painting with acuerelas, working with wool, .... All these simple tasks with the children create a relationship between both parties that contribute to that personal growth in the volunteer.
All these objectives are linked to the objectives of the program and are carried out on a day-to-day basis with children and training given to them on waldorf pedagogy in order to contribute to our objectives.

The results and impacts that are expected from the realization of this project are for volunteers developed and addressed personally. In the hosting organization is that each members of the group as well as families are enriched at a personal and work level, changes are received for doing work each day in another way. In the sending organisations, they can be enriched also at a personal and work level due to the passage of volunteers.
But the main impact is also with children who connect especially with volunteers (languages, closeness and multicultural awareness)
