Pestalozzi Guiding Principles

1. The power of lived experience

We believe that the best people to influence the advancement of policies, markets and communities in the developing world are those who truly understand the context of poverty.

2. A complete education

Education is not only about knowledge. It should also develop children’s powers of ‘Head,' ‘Heart’ and ‘Hands’ simultaneously - in other words, their minds, their characters and their practical life skills.

3. Child-centred care changes lives

Nurturing children’s emotional and physical well-being is essential to enable their social development and help create the compassionate leaders and change-makers our world needs.

The Pestalozzi values: learning with Head, Heart and Hands

Our work is inspired by Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi, a Swiss social reformer and educator.

Pestalozzi believed that education is not just about knowledge. It should instead develop children’s ‘Head’, ‘Heart’ and ‘Hands’ simultaneously – in other words, their minds, their character and their practical life skills. This complete approach shapes children who develop the tools and the compassion they need to become future leaders and change-makers.

For this reason, the pupils we nurture through our programmes not only receive excellent classroom education (the Head). They also learn how to care for themselves and others and are required to volunteer locally (the Heart) and to develop their practical skills beyond the classroom (the Hands).

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.
