Christel House South Africa needs your help to raise funds to purchase shoes, books and nutritious meals for the new academic year. We have 755 students enrolled for 2018, all of which come from 20 impoverished communities in Cape Town. Help us break the cycle of poverty by donating today.

Christel House operates nine learning centres around the world of which the school in Ottery (Cape Town) is the only one in Africa. Learners are transported daily (Mondays to Fridays and some Saturdays) from areas such as Khayelithsa, Langa and Mannenberg using 18 school buses for the daily return trips. The school has a holistic K-12 education model that focuses on strong character development, complemented by regular health care, nutritious meals, guidance counselling, career planning, family assistance and college and careers support. Through this structured approach, it breaks the cycle of poverty and transforms the lives of hundreds of underprivileged children ever year.

In South Africa over 45% of the population is classified as poor, with the youth being the most severely affected. At Christel House, learners are not only selected based on academic merit alone, but also on dire financial need. The main requirement for admissions is a monthly household income of R1 500 or less and therefore helps the ‘poorest of the poor’ to break free from a life of poverty.

You can help by donating funds to purchase a pair of school shoes (R150), nutritional meals for one student for one month (R320) or cover the cost of school books (R500).

You can also sponsor a student for an entire academic year at a cost of R58 000 which includes total tuition fees, healthcare, social services, transport, uniform and other essential educational needs.

A 100% of all donations benefit Christel House's holistic human development programs and SA donors are eligible to receive a tax-deductible 18A tax certificate for the value of their contributions.

As an accredited level 4 B-BBEE contributor, businesses can receive BEE points for their donations.
