900 thousand Hungarian Forints for survivalFour years ago we founded the Rózsaház School with the aim of enabling children with different developmental challenges to experience the healing power of Waldorf education and to learn in a community where they can finally be themselves and fulfill themselves. Through many, many miracles and collaborations, the school is up and running, but now it needs an extra 900 000 Forints (cca. 2200 EUR) per month to continue. That is why we are reaching out to you.
Energy insecurityOver the years, we have put tremendous effort into keeping this magical place alive. Parents, relatives, many friends and strangers have stood by us. We have become more and more self-sufficient, but recent events have made our school's situation almost impossible. Please help our children to continue their education at the Rózsaház School despite the increased energy costs and other expenses!
The energy of joint forcesPlease send us energy! By making a one-time or a regular monthly donation, you can help us to ensure that our children grow up in a school and community that helps them to build the fullest and most self-sufficient lives possible.DONATE
The first priority was to make sure Zsuzsi was emotionally safe. Development should be based on her interests and abilities in an environment that is close to nature and has a friendly atmosphere.
Esztus was attending an integrated Waldorf kindergarten, but we had to admit that in a large class she would hardly have a chance of success. As the Waldorf approach is very important to us, we could not imagine that she would not enjoy the benefits of it. So we joined in the work of founding the Rózsaház: many small steps on an untrodden, winding road...but we wouldn't trade it for anything else!
Szilárd, if he went to a normal school, he would be the black sheep of the class, with constant conflicts. But here, he gets enough attention from his teachers, and because of the small number of students, he can pay attention to others and relate to them. He has opened up, made a lot of progress, enjoys reading and math is his favorite subject.
Luca doesn't speak, but she tells you everything in her own language. We understand when she tells us how much she loves going to this school. We are at a good place, in an excellent, inspiring community - that's for sure!
Rózsaház has become a second home for Fanni, thanks to the loving and accepting environment of the school. As children we cried because we had to go to school, Fanni cries when she can't. :)
Manci is a little girl living with high intellectual ability and autism. In the 25-persons/group normal kindergarten, she kept saying that the kindergarten would close, until it finally did. True, it was due to the pandemic, but Manci didn't mind. In the Rózsaház class of 8, she's making good progress, considers everyone her friend and those are the really happy days when she can go to school.
For a long time, we looked for a school for Barni where the focus was on opportunities rather than difficulties. We wanted a place where he could become an integral part of the community and be free to express his beautiful inner world. Since he started attending Rózsaház school, our daily lives are much more peaceful.
This September we started one more first grade with 8 new little pupils.
Every morning, 35 smiling children walk into the school to learn, create and play.
This is the number of individual and unique speech and movement development lessons delivered by our teachers in one year.
Over the past 2 years, this is how many of you have helped our school to make dreams come true
