Next in our Customer Spotlight series we find out more about PestalozziWorld.
Who are PestalozziWorld?
Less than 15% of children from the rural areas of India, Nepal, Malawi and Zambia are enrolled in secondary education. These children face many issues, poverty, lack of accessible schools and cultural barriers that keep girls at home. In many countries girls face the additional threat of human trafficking.
PestalozziWorld provides scholarships to poor, mostly rural children aged between 10 and 20, enabling them to attend secondary school. For many such children, the alternative is to work in subsistence farming, as labourers, or, for girls, early marriage. The children are selected on the basis of two girls for every one boy.
“Pestalozzi is a unique organisation because all of our administrative costs are covered by our trustees so 100% of donations go straight to the care and education of the children.”
Claire Mulry, Communications Officer, PestalozziWorld
