Why PestalozziWorld?


In areas of poverty, gender, disease, poor schools and the pressure to work limit children’s opportunities to learn.


Your support enables PestalozziWorld to select the brightest children, at least two girls for each boy, house them in nurturing residential villages, provide them with exceptional pastoral care and the education their potential deserves.


In the developing world:



 of children do not achieve minimum proficiency levels in reading and maths



 school aged children are trapped in child labour



 of the world's 774 million illiterate people are female

Children’s abilities are equally distributed across the globe, but opportunity isn’t.

"I'm from a remote village in Malawi, and I used to walk 45 minutes to get to school. My parents struggled to make an income.

In 2013, PestalozziWorld selected me for a scholarship. For the first time I slept in a bed, and had books, shoes and a uniform. When I complete my education I want to become a doctor."
