Kufunda Village Waldorf school
“We are supporting and enabling the learning and development of our children in creative ways both in and out of school, as they are our guides to the future”.
Kufunda 5 year vision and planning document
After several years of running a joint school with a partner in the city under the name Nyeredzi, Kufunda in 2017 embarked on the adventure of running our own school. Our vision continues to be a school that is worthy of the soul's and mind's of our children, and of a school that makes the most of our placement in beautiful nature, and in a learning village - integrating the best of what we already have for the deepening of our children's learning, curiosity and sense of wonder in the world around them. We are dedicated to providing learning that enables the development of the whole child, stimulating their creativity and imagination while giving them a strong foundation in learning and knowledge for life
In addition to the primary school, Kufunda's work with children includes:
Waldorf training and collaboration teachers working with rural pre-schools, often supporting orphans and vulnerable children
hosting after-school activities with and for our children at Kufunda
Experimenting with intergenerational retreats as a way of integrating children into the life and work of the village
