Our mission is to make a real and lasting difference by applying the Pestalozzi principles of educating the Head, Heart and Hands.
Pestalozzi is a UK-based charity with more than 50 years’ experience of offering life-changing opportunities to young people from disadvantaged communities around the world.
Pestalozzi awards scholarships to exceptional 16-19 year olds who are academically gifted but have limited educational prospects in their home countries. These young people have all demonstrated their enthusiasm for helping to make a difference in their communities.
Pestalozzi students live for two years in a multi-cultural, multi-faith community in East Sussex, UK, where they welcome difference and embrace diversity. They study at Sussex Coast College Hastings and undertake a broad range of extra-curricular activities, gaining an holistic education focused on the Pestalozzi principles of Head, Heart and Hands.
Pestalozzi scholarships give these young people an opportunity they would not otherwise receive – the chance to develop their potential, pursue their ambitions and go on to make a real and lasting difference in the world.
