Zambian Village

We are a thriving children's village in the heart of Lusaka, Zambia. Our Pestalozzi Zambian village provides child-centered care looks after our children's emotional well-being, encourages them to help others, and motivates them to achieve their goals.

Pestalozzi Children's Village Lusaka, Zambia

Our Pestalozzi Zambian Village has been operating on two sites in Lusaka, for more than a decade. 

Two-thirds of the children selected for our programme come from rural villages in all provinces of Zambia. One-third of the students are from refugee camps and neighbouring countries including Malawi, Angola, Burundi, Congo and Rwanda.

Our students start their journeys with Pestalozzi World in a highly nurturing environment within our foundation house called Kasisi. Here they spend their first two years learning maths and English along with the Pestalozzi ethos.

Our children are then ready to become students of the Zambian Village in Ibex Hill. They all study at an excellent partner private school, which is only a few steps away from the Village.  

After the school day has ended, they play sports on the field and return to the Village where our children participate in many hobbies to develop their personal interests and passions. They learn a variety of vocational and life skills to improve employability and encourage independence.
