Eleanor Latimer was in Amsterdam, delivering a check personally to Lynne Lawrence, from AMI, United States Foundation for the Maria Montessori House.
AMI/USF raises funds and make grants that advance the principles, methods, and values of Maria Montessori for the education, development and welfare of children and young adults. To do this the Foundation makes grants to support Montessori-related projects around the world and to support specific educational, charitable, and/or scientific projects in partnership with the Association Montessori Internationale.
The Maria Montessori House is a project incorporating a Museum, Open Archive and Research Centre. The hundred-year-old house needs to be stripped from top to bottom and converted into a welcoming, interactive space.
