Challenge

Too many brilliant children worldwide are held back from realising their potential by extreme rural poverty, displacement due to conflict, gender stereotypes, poor education and the pressure to work and earn a living. At Pestalozzi World, our mission is to provide a child-centred education that produces young adults capable of changing the world.

Solution

Our experts work with local communities in poor rural areas to select the brightest 10 year old children (two girls for each boy), and with their families' encouragement, we offer these children the opportunity to move to one of our Pestalozzi Villages. Here, we employ the Head, Heart and Hands educational philosophy of Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi, where children receive an excellent education (Head), a nurturing child-centred environment (Heart) and are taught practical life skills (Hands).

Long-Term Impact

Our monitoring shows that our Alumni are becoming a new generation of teachers, health professionals, entrepreneurs, aid workers and leaders, equipped with the tools they need to change their local communities and countries. Our Alumni are 3 times more likely in Asia and 11 times more likely in Zambia to achieve a university or college qualification than national averages. 70% have volunteered in projects to help others, are in careers of public service or have supported others financially.
