The inception of Waldorf Kakuma Project was an agreement made between Fruende der Erziehungskunst Emergency Pedagogy and the Nairobi Waldorf School. The objective of the project was to provide refugee children at the Kakuma Camp in Kenya with basic quality education and trauma elevation through Waldorf Pedagogy.

 

 

2.0 PURPOSE / OBJECTIVE

 

The purpose of a Child Friendly Space is to provide children with a protected environment in which they can participate in organized activities to play, socialize, learn, and express themselves as they rebuild their lives. Child Friendly Spaces are one of waldorf’s key interventions to protect children from physical harm and psychosocial distress and to help them continue learning and developing both during and immediately after undergoing a traumatic experience

 

Child Friendly Spaces are places that help to reduce a range of distressing effects of a crisis on a child.  Child Friendly Space activities are designed to build on children's natural and evolving coping capacities, and proactively involve children in the selection of activities to ensure that the activities are relevant to children. Child Friendly Spaces can provide a child-focused and child-friendly environment in which children continue their cognitive development and can give them opportunities to learn on a variety of levels. In many cases, they can help minimize the disruption to the learning and development opportunities that schooling provides. Child Friendly Spaces reaffirm the concept that children are capable of positive self-direction and do not place inappropriate responsibilities on children. They can help children establish a sense of security and re- build self-esteem.

 

Child Friendly Spaces are supervised environments in which parents and caregivers can leave their children while they collect food and water, rebuild homes or seek new income- generating activities. They are places to provide care while family, community, and social structures are being restored. They provide opportunities for parents and caregivers to be actively involved, share information, provide input and guidance, and increase their own self- confidence to protect and care for children.
