Since the beginning of the founding of the school, we have worked on how to accompany each child to unfold their individual potential regardless of their social, economic and cultural background. As we are located in a rural area in Egypt, we have faced many challenges to create a safe space for children to explore their full learning capacity. Like many other educational institutions, during the pandemic we met a good challenge to believe in our system and stay truthful to what we have done at the same time to take it as an opportunity to experiment new methods. In this presentation, we would like to share different practices we have tried to continue our path on creating the learning space for connection with hope, healing and courage; home setting schooling, enhanced teachers training, collaboration with the Economy of Love Edu program for employees at the SEKEM factories and establishing a new school in the Bahariya Oasis Wahat.
