Hyderabad/India: Waldorf is booming

July 2018

Waldorf Education is very popular in India – applications to the seven schools and more than 25 kindergartens are constantly increasing. No wonder.

According to the Indian education magazine Education World both educators and employers state that children must not only acquire knowledge but also life skills at school in order to become professionally successful later on. The magazine then examined India's schools whether they were teaching these life skills and established a ranking. The two Waldorf schools Sloka in Hyderabad and Tridha in Mumbai are at the cutting edge. Both were among the top ten of this ranking.

Another Waldorf school in Hyderabad, one of India's largest cities, continues to grow. The Prerana Waldorf School, founded in 2001, now has more than 500 students and so many registrations that it became urgently necessary to extend the existing school building. Children from all income groups are accepted, about 20 percent of the students cannot and do not have to pay for tuition. In order to continue this principle, the school needed assistance to extend the building. The Friends of Waldorf Education were able to support the project with 25.000 euros from donations, so that two floors can be added to the existing school building.
