Our Values

We commit to a broad 7/8 year education with residential, child-centred care at Pestalozzi Villages, delivering it since 1995.

Excellent results are delivered cost-effectively, we can prove life-transforming outcomes for our children, and our Alumni having a life-transforming impact on others.

Guiding Principles:

1. A complete education is learning with Head, Heart and Hands.

Education is not only knowledge. It should develop children’s minds, their character and their practical skills.

 

2. Child-centered care changes lives.

Creating the compassionate leadership required to drive socio-economic change starts with nurturing of children’s emotional, and physical, wellbeing.

 

3. The power of lived experience.

The best people to influence the advancement of policies, markets & communities in the developing world are those who understand poverty.

 

4. Our Alumni should lead wherever possible.

Understanding what it is to be a Pestalozzi child best and the challenges faced by them, the leadership of our Alumni in our organisations contributes to a ‘circle of success’.

 

What sets us apart?

Excellent results are delivered cost effectively, we can prove life-transforming outcomes for our children, and our Alumni having a life-transforming impact on others.

Committed to a broad Head, Heart and Hands education delivered with 8-years' depth, residentially at locally recognised 'Centres of Excellence' for child-centered care.
We seed and mentor local organizations to sustainability - we do not try to manage them from afar. Local people lead delivery, understanding best their contexts.
We innovate by supporting social enterprises which share Pestalozzi values in Outreach with more communities, and/or derive trading income to further our mission.

Our Alumni say it best:

The impact of a Pestalozzi education runs through the souls of our Alumni. Listen to our four Zambian Alumni explain how they still reflect on their Pestalozzi education and ethos in their everyday lives beyond our Villages.
