“Our greatest task should be to educate human beings to be free, and capable for themselves to find purpose and direction in their lives.” Rudolf Steinerr
Our school ‘Escola Rural Dendê da Serra’ is situated on the southern coast of Bahia, Brazil and offers a Steiner/Waldorf education to the children of this region, from Kindergarten up to the end of Elementary School, (ages 3 to 15).
Most children come from low income families and very few can afford to make financial contributions to the school. The school is maintained by its own Association; ‘Associação Pedagógica Dendê da Serra’ which is responsible for fund-raising.
The school is located in the rural district of Serra Grande, within an environmentally diverse and protected area of forests, rivers and beaches.
