Continue the Legacy of Maria Montessori - Support EsF work 

AMI continues the legacy of Maria Montessori through the global outreach work of its Educateurs sans Frontières division. Volunteers and professionals work under the EsF umbrella in all contexts of the world, to promote the rights of the child irrespective of race, religion, political or social beliefs. The work is carried out by individuals and organisations with a commitment to bring quality Montessori education to parts of the world which would not previously have access.

The Corner of Hope is one of those initiatives, which has brought Montessori education to internally displaced people in Kenya. The project began in 2010 and has resulted in a thriving school and community centre, more than 75 trained teachers, a second school initiated by members of the community, and now satellite schools bringing Montessori education to the Nomadic Samburu Tribe. The community is thriving, and with further funding we are able to establish more mobile schools in Nomadic communities. To find more information visit the Educateurs sans Frontières website.

Support the Maria Montessori House

Maria Montessori’s former study is preserved and open to the public at the AMI Head Office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The property next to AMI’s Head Office is currently being renovated to become the Maria Montessori House, including an exhibition space, research and archive centre of Maria Montessori’s published works and unpublished material, and a meeting space for discussion and knowledge sharing.

The generous support of major benefactors, Orcillia and Nicky Oppenheimer, enabled AMI to purchase this property. 

AMI is aiming to fundraise at least 1.5 million Euro to build an exceptional research centre and museum which will require excavation and reconfiguring of the  basements. Donors will receive a "Brick Certificate" and all donor names will be recorded on a Founding Member Plaque.
