Shaping the future through educationChanging course and providing support. This was the motto agreed by the Management Board and Foundation Board of the Pestalozzi Children’s Foundation (PCF) on 28 February 2022 during the Ukraine crisis. Since then, 150 people from Ukraine have arrived in the Village and have found a temporary home here. But where do we go from here? Let us look back so that we can then look forward.
