Help fill tummies this December holiday by sponsoring Buckets of Hope for students of Christel House SA. Like Carlyle, our students live in some of the most under-resourced communities on the Cape Flats in Cape Town. During the school term, we provide our students with daily nutritious meals, but the long December school holidays are often a very difficult time for our families – which is why we need your help.

Donate one or more Buckets of Hope, filled with non-perishable food items and a few extra treats, and bring hope to our students and their families this festive season. Each bucket costs R250 and our aim is to distribute 680 buckets to 680 families before the holiday break of 9 December.

1 Bucket of Hope = R250/£12/$14/€14
2 Buckets of Hope = R500/£24/$28/€28
3 Buckets of Hope = R750/£36/$41/€42
6 Buckets of Hope = R1500/£72/$83/€83
10 Buckets of Hope = R2500//£120/$138/€139

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.

Helps students like Carlyle by clicking DONATE and to help us EVEN MORE, click the “MONTHLY" option next to any of the Buckets of Hope tabs on the donation page to provide nutritious meals throughout the year. To learn more about us, visit www.sa.christelhouse.org or email us at bsipunzi@sa.christelhouse.org to arrange a visit to our school.

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.
