The Project

In 2013 we created Bizilore, a non-profit family association with the intention of contributing our bit to the local educational world. During these years there are two objectives that have guided us: The construction of an approved educational project that, at the same time, was a project for personal growth.

We understand learning as a vital process that, consequently, starts when we are born, and is inherent to life, only ending with death. Learning is permanent, all day, every day of our lives we learn, and therefore we can not limit this process to the mere acquisition of knowledge.

We rely on trust, on the capacity of each child, on the respect of their autonomy and initiative, on the unique rhythm that each person has for the learning process; we believe in learning in the nature and with the nature, which stimulates creativity, emphasizes the emotional, and makes the playful a tool for learning that accompanies in the process of reading, writing and comprehension … If we were able to accompany that rhythm of growth and maturation getting them to coincide with ours, we would not only be discovering the world from the eyes of our sons and daughters but that new perspective would also be more human and happy.

That is why we felt the need for the pedagogical project, that could not only consist of a new school for children from 3 to 12 years. We wanted to open it too, to all generations and in their different processes of growth, and we saw the necessity to open our project to the community and support the changes that had to take place in it.

This is how our Integral Growth Project (Hazkuntza Proiektu Integrala) was created and our commitment and respect for all life processes, for the free development of our personality, respect for nature and commitment to more open and healthy relationships.

Going through these years has not been easy. The difficulties we have encountered have been important, but the union and enthusiasm with which we have worked has allowed us to overcome these difficulties, which have not been few, and affirm the educational project. To strengthen its economic viability was born Abaraxka, a hostel and a restaurant (Mikel Uría) whose profits are destined to the management of the school itself.
