Camphill Community Trust Botswana
The Camphill movement was established in 1945 in Scotland. Working from indications for curative education and social therapy given by Dr Rudolf Steiner, a school for children with severe learning difficulties was established within the context of a supportive community. A college for youth challenged by disabilities and the provision of meaningful work and residential support in group homes for adults with disabilities was also established. The Camphill movement has grown to encompass more than 100 communities around the world. Each community is run independently but communities within the Camphill Movement work together through national, regional and international association.
