Pestalozzi Children's Village feeling at Swissdidac
Switzerland's largest educational meeting place - Swissdidac - is history. For three days, one highlight followed another. Our radio bus and the children and young people who put life into our bus and our stand took centre stage.
Children's rights: New teaching material for schools
In collaboration with three other organisations, the Pestalozzi Children's Village has developed educational teaching material for schools on children's rights with a focus on a "clean, healthy and sustainable environment". It is now available for download.
The third, but not the last visit
Marianne Nitsche was twice in an exchange project in the Pestalozzi Children's Village as a child. Today she is a teacher and is in Trogen with her class for a theme project week.
More success for minorities
Yong Lee belongs to an ethnic minority in Laos. Also, she is extremely proficient in Lao, the country’s official language. Her inspiring story highlights how our education project can improve the prospects for minorities in Laos.
Promoting Safe schools
In autumn we started a new project in North Macedonia. Together with our partner organisation "Coalition of youth organisations SEGA", we are working to prevent violence in primary and secondary schools.
