Steiner School

I had been teaching in Germany before I went to Kenya as a pioneer Waldorf  School teacher.
I taught there for ten years. During that time I became competent in social entrepreneurship.

The experiences I made in these two spheres lead to the development of the concept of social entrepreneurship for young people which is called nyendo. learning hand in hand.

My heartfelt wish is to encourage and to empower young people to engage themselves with enthusiasm to change the world for the better.

I discovered that the authentic encounter between the different cultures is the heart beat of this vision.
Therefore I offer journeys where the main focus lies on the encounter with another culture.

Trust Yourself:
every heart vibrates to that iron string.

Accept the place the divine providence has found for you, the society of your contemporaries, the connection of events. Great men have always done so, and confided themselves childlike to the genius of their age, betraying their perception that the absolutely trustworthy was seated at their heart, working through their hands, predominating in all their being.

And we are now men, and must accept in the highest mind the same transcendent destiny; and not minors and invalids in a protected corner, not cowards fleeing before a revolution, but guides, redeemers, and benefactors, obeying the Almighty effort, and advancing on Chaos and the Dark.
