Education

We are committed to children’s education

Education paves the way for children to benefit from an independent, economically secure future. Education creates social justice and promotes tolerance towards others. This is why we are committed to providing education opportunities for children and youths both in Switzerland and around the world.

Education projects abroad

Over 50 million children do not go to school. Children from ethnic and religious minorities and poor families in particular are frequently refused school education. This perpetuates the problem, as education is an indisputable means of escaping poverty.

Education for underprivileged children

Every franc invested in education generates several times its worth in added value. The Pestalozzi Children’s Foundation advocates access to high-quality education for disadvantaged children in eleven countries worldwide. Every year, our education projects reach approximately 120,500 children, teaching staff and parents throughout the world.

Educational projects in Switzerland

While we advocate access to education for underprivileged children abroad, our focus in Switzerland is on promoting intercultural skills for children and youths. Globalisation is making the world smaller: different cultures are rubbing shoulders and blending with one another. The situation in Switzerland is no exception.

Creating tolerance and understanding

In a globalised world, tolerance and mutual understanding are key to a peaceful coexistence. Our educational projects, which are targeted at Swiss children and youths and groups from abroad, address these issues. During their stay at the Pestalozzi Children’s Village, young people learn to embrace the unknown and support minorities. More than 2,000 children and youths take part in the extracurricular projects at the Children’s Village every year.
