Pestalozzi International Village Trust

Description

For forty years the Pestalozzi International Village has educated young people from low-income families in developing countries. Its work in the UK is based on the principles of the Swiss philosopher Johann Pestalozzi, who believed in educating the whole person: 'the head, heart and hands'. Its students come to the Village, aged 16-plus, and take the two-year International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma course, run in conjunction with Hastings College of Arts & Technology. This is a demanding and internationally recognised university entrance qualification, which includes community service: the Pestalozzi students work closely with local schools and community groups, helping to build bridges of international understanding and co-operation.

This combination of academic study with practical and community work fulfils the Pestalozzi philosophy and helps prepare the young people to play an important role in their home communities in later life.
