Breaking the Cycle of Poverty

Our mission: Christel House graduates achieve upward economic mobility, demonstrate good citizenship, and are empowered to identify and realize their goals, dreams, and human potential.


Poverty touches every aspect of a child’s life. The child born into poverty almost always remains trapped there unless significant interventions occur. Left unaided, impoverished children face a lifetime of physical and psychological trauma—illiteracy, malnutrition, disease, low self-esteem and lack of opportunity. These are among the root causes of poverty that Christel House overcomes.

Christel House's holistic programme is designed to transform the lives of impoverished children. Our school embeds strong character development ethics throughout our programme which are complemented by professional health care, nutritious meals, psychosocial counselling, family assistance and college and careers planning and support. We focus on the whole child.
