Interdisciplinary, Inclusive, and Innovative

We started Ichche Dana Learning Center in December 2013. We have made very exciting progress since then.

Why open a school?

Six years of working with children who have been severely abused and abandoned has taught us that conventional schooling just doesn’t work. Their profound sense of danger and lack of trust leave the children unable to think much past survival. An educational system built upon memorisation without context interferes in their ability to integrate information into a usable knowledge base.
