KUSI KAWSAY: A HAPPY SCHOOL IN THE PERUVIAN ANDES
Kusi Kawsay, Quechua voice translated into English as happy life, is the name of the Andean school in Pisaq, Cusco-Peru, whose purpose is true to its name: to produce happiness in the lives of students, teachers, collaborators and their families. Its recipe sounds as simple as it is novel: Waldorf pedagogy contributes part of the methodology and the teaching content comes from the Andean culture and cosmovision. The result: a school that strengthens cultural identity and prepares for life in harmony, beyond competitiveness and individualism. A bet, which at the beginning has had to swim against the current; now it is gradually becoming a reference.
