Established in 2019, the Pestalozzi Development Fund was created to enable Pestalozzi International Village Trust UK and Pestalozzi International Foundation alumni to set up or expand projects or activities of benefit to their own or other developing communities. We hope that access to small amounts of seed funding will allow our alumni to make an earlier and greater positive impact in the world.
We are particularly keen to support projects that contribute to making the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) a reality.
“We are very thankful to receive this Grant from Pestalozzi International Foundation. Our intentions in helping Zambia achieve key indicators in the mother and child health segment and meeting UN Sustainable Development Goal 3 will be able to move forward in a timely manner through the Promoting Safe Motherhood Initiatives in Lusaka’s Kanyama’ Sub District using the Mama’s Moments Maternity Kit and the Mama’s Moment Clean Delivery Initiative.
As the saying goes a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, I sincerely believe that this Grant Funding is the giant step forward and will affect over the 700,000 pregnant women in Zambia.”
