Could you help Pestalozzi World senior students make choices about their futures? We are looking for our alumni to volunteer to become a mentoring buddy
Hello 👋 and welcome to our Pestalozzi Alumni Community page!
All of our alumni are incredible in many different ways. We want to keep our alumni connected to each other and to us, to share experiences and successes, as well as look at ways of helping more children in India, Africa and Nepal through our Pestalozzi programme.
We also want to encourage our alumni to help our current students as much as they can, to help support them on their journey’s post Pestalozzi World.
2. Do you have a story to tell?
Your story can send a powerful message, not only to fellow students who can look up to you as a role model, but also to potential donors, who will be inspired by your story of success and will want to give to help more young children become successful adults, like you, capable of changing the world.
If you have a story you are happy to share, we would really like to hear form you. Please email Jessica on firstname.lastname@example.org
