#GiveaHandUp to new Grade RR’s at Christel House

Remember your first day going to school? Your new shoes, your new backpack filled with brand new stationery and that uniform that was just a little too big at the time?  Well, now is your chance to help create these happy memories for 60 deserving Grade RR students. For the first time in Christel House’s 20-year history, we are adding three Grade RR classes to our school, 20 students per class. But we need your help to kit our newest little Christel Housers.

to our new Grade RR’s by donating essential school supplies, including school shoes, uniforms, a backpack, learning materials and educational toys, as well as fortified porridge that contains essential nutrients for growing children.  

All of our new recruits are from households where the average income is less than R1 500 per person per month. So back-to-school supplies are a luxury many of our parents simply cannot afford. For as little as R50, R150, R500 or R1200 (the price of a full starter kit), your donation will give our Grade RR’s a hand up on their 19-year learning journey with us. That is 14 years of formal schooling, from Grade RR to Grade 12, and 5 years of post-school support to help them escape a life of poverty for good. 

Donate today and help to transform a life forever. 

* Grade RR admissions are subject to final approval by the Western Cape Education Department.
