Life at Krumhuk
At Krumhuk we live in a large farm community of about 80 people, consisting of members, employees, trainees, families and children. Community life expresses itself in a whole variety of ways: working and living together, festival celebrations and worship, singing together, eurythmy, and, at the beginning of every week, a morning circle in the farmyard.
The staff members’ children go to the farm kindergarten. It is in what used to be a stable and is run by a volunteer under the guidance of an experienced Waldorf kindergarten teacher. Once the children reach school age they have the possibility of going to Aris, the farm’s school.
Some of the children have the privilege of attending the Waldorf School in Windhoek. Whether they are able to do this depends upon the admissions criteria of the school, parental permission, and finding financial sponsorship, since the fees are beyond the parents’ means. The farm looks after the matter of daily transport. In the afternoons there is a time when the children do their homework, and this is supervised by one of the school’s volunteers. The idea behind this is to provide the parents with insights into their child’s education and thus help to bridge the possible gap between home conditions and school.
All this is unthinkable without the helping hands and financial support of people who are concerned about the future of Africa, and who share the conviction that a decent future can only be founded upon meaningful, holistic education.
