House Mothers and Nurse

Lusaka, Zambia, Full Time Closes: August 12, 2022

Established in 1995, PestalozziWorld is an international alliance of organizations that provides scholarships, housing and vocational training to children ages 10-18, from families living in remote, rural areas of Africa and Asia, who have demonstrated academic ability in primary school but have no local access to secondary school. Operations in Zambia are overseen by the Pestalozzi Zambia Children’s Trust. It has evolved into a Centre currently accommodating over 230 boys and girls, not only from Zambia but also with refugees from Angola, Congo and other neighboring African countries. It has two Children’s Villages within Lusaka: Kasisi (for the youngest children, Grades 5 and 6) and Ibex Hill (for children in Grades 7 to 12). The Organization now employs over 90 local members of staff.
We are inviting applications from individuals who have a genuine interest in children and development of youth in Zambia.
