Fatima, 32, is one of the teachers at the House of Flowers, a safe space in Kabul for children orphans of war. She teaches after school classes with the Montessori Method and it is the only space in all Afghanistan where children can learn and study through Montessori principles and art therapy. "Our children are the best at school!" Fatima is a teacher at House of Flowers proud of her students - all of them orphans from different regions in Afghanistan - who learn and study by cutting natural materials and building walking letters. It's the Montessori method and the classes at the House of Flowers are the only ones in Afghanistan where it is applied: maps, art and games are regularly used also to help children do their homework after going to public school. Found in 2002 in Kabul, the House of Flowers hosts orphans of various ethnicities, victims of wars. The Montessori method is taught all over the world and here in Afghanistan helps children recover from the traumas of loss. Razia, another staff teacher, was also an orphan: she has spent all her childhood in the House of Flowers until her studies at University: now she is a teacher there, too. And she is not orphan anymore: the House of Flowers is her home too. (Text by Marta Bellingreri)
