Educating
for Brighter Futures

Pestalozzi World provides exceptional children from some of the poorest communities in Africa and Asia with a unique education that produces young adults capable of changing the world.

£12 a month can house and feed a student in one of our villages.

From day one we’ve relied on a small group of generous supporters to fund our operating expenses and salaries, so every penny you donate is spent on the care and education of the children.

What does Pestalozzi World do?

We work with communities to select the best and the brightest children among those held back by extreme poverty, racial inequalities, gender stereotypes, poor education and the pressure to work and earn a living.

With the encouragement of their families, we offer these children the opportunity to leave behind these difficulties, and move to one of the Pestalozzi Villages where they receive:

Excellent Education

At high quality local schools, living in a conducive environment for learning and receiving additional academic support from staff and peers.

Nurturing Environment

With child-centred care looking after their emotional wellbeing, encouraging them to take care of others and inspiring their ambition.

Practical Life Skills

Children grow food and take pride in keeping their village clean and tidy. They learn crafts to develop skills they can use in future life.

You invest and educate

And they change their worlds

Supporting & Inspiring Others

Giving back to the Next Generation

Together we are shaping a new generation which has the tools and compassion needed to influence others and to do great things for their communities and change lives

A worldwide challenge

Schools are often inadequate or under-resourced.

Around 53% of children in low-and middle-income countries cannot read and understand a simple story by the end of primary school.

World Bank 2019a

Millions of children are forced to work to support their families.

Globally, 63 million girls and 97 million boys were in child labour at the beginning of 2020.

Unicef and ILO 2020

Girls are often the first to lose their right to an education.

Globally, 1 in 5 women 20 to 24 years of age were married in childhood.

The Girl Effect

Pestalozzi World believes in the power of girls to change the world…and the power of education to change the fate of girls.

Education can change the fate of girls. Ensuring that girls get a secondary education is one of the most effective ways to avert child marriage, early pregnancy and unemployment. This is why two out of every three children we select are female.

The girls who join our programme are given the tools and support they need to become future leaders and change-makers – and exceptional role models for other girls from their communities.

With your help Pestalozzi World is here to change that.
