Help fill tummies this December holiday by sponsoring Buckets of Hope for Christel House SA students like Lisa and her sisters. The main criterion for admission to our school is not evidence of talent, but evidence of poverty. All Christel House SA students live in some of the most disadvantaged communities in Cape Town. We have identified families who are experiencing particularly difficult circumstances, with Covid-19 putting additional strain on their finances this year. With your help, we can fill 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 450 buckets to 450 families before the holiday break of 10 December.

1 Bucket of Hope = R200/£10/$13/€11
2 Buckets of Hope = R400/£20/$26/€22
3 Buckets of Hope = R600/£30/$39/€33
5 Buckets of Hope = R1000/$50/€55

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. It offers no-fee scholarships to students from some of Cape Town’s poorest neighborhoods and support them for 19 years (Grade RR to Grade 12 and five years post matric) through character-based and career-focused education. The school’s beneficiaries include 800+ students from grade RR to 12, 250+ post-matric students and more than 3000 parents and other members of the communities it serves.

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 Christel House’s 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.

Christel House transforms the lives of its students and help to build self-sufficient, contributing members of society.
