Help fill tummies and put smiles on our students’ faces this December holiday by sponsoring Buckets of Hope. Students who attend Christel House SA live in some of the most impoverished communities in Cape Town. Life is hard for many of them, with Covid-19 putting additional strain on their families this year. With your help, we can fill their tummies and add some joy to their December holidays. Donate one or more Buckets of Hope, filled with non-perishable goods and a few extra treats, and help bring relief to our students and their families this festive season. Each bucket costs R200 and our aim is to distribute 400 buckets before the holiday break of 15 December.
1 Bucket of Hope = R200
2 Buckets of Hope = R400
3 Buckets of Hope = R600
Every donation counts and all South African donors will receive a Section 18A tax-deductible certificate and businesses can also earn BEE points for their contributions.

About Christel House South Africa
Christel House South Africa is a non-profit school with a single mission: to break the cycle of poverty. We offer no-fee scholarships to students from some of Cape Town’s poorest neighbourhoods and support them for 18 years (Grade R to Grade 12 and five years post matric) through character-based and career focused education. Our beneficiaries include 740 students from grade R to 12, 250+ post-matric students and more than 3000 parents and other members of the communities we serve.The main criterion for admission to Christel House is not evidence of talent – but evidence of poverty, one measure of which is a maximum average income of R1,500 per household member per month. Key aspects of our model include poverty mitigation services in the form of daily transport to school and back, professional health care, nutritious meals, psychosocial counselling, family assistance and college and careers planning and support.We are justifiably proud of our 99% matric pass rate since inception and that 93% of our alumni are studying, working or both. In doing so, we transform the lives of our students and help to build self-sufficient, contributing members of society.
