New dwelling for the living and working community in Qedeli

News ,  Current news ,  Waldorf worldwide

People with disabilities have been living and working in the Qedeli community in Georgia for almost 20 years. There was space for about 18 residents so far, but now another residential building has been built so that a total of 31 people can be cared for. The village, a little off the beaten track, was revitalized by the construction work and the additional residents. There are several workshops aimed at self-sufficiency: garden, bakery, wood and wool workshop, and laundry. On the surrounding meadows the community’s cows graze. A lot of importance is attached to art and culture. The initiator and director Lali Khandolishvili, formerly a professional music teacher, also helps the residents to achieve a really good vocal power, which they are happy to prove at performances.
