The Corner of Hope is a pilot project to help vulnerable people such as those in refugee, transit and IDP Camps build a community using the principles of the Montessori approach. It is based on an ethos of self-reliance not dependence, community not school, self ownership and control, dignity and self worth which all play an important role in overcoming the effects of trauma experienced by the inhabitants of the camps. It has the added advantage of building for the future and creating transferable skills that will accompany both adults and children wherever their final destination may be. The initial project includes a school for 520 children within the Transit Camp in New Canaan, near Nakuru. The following video shows the construction of the school, training of the teachers, provision of the Montessori materials and joy of the children.
