Thank you for your continued support of Christel House India! By supporting our efforts, you are providing girls the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty and make a difference in their communities. Our holistic approach assures not only a top notch education, but nutrition, medical, and mental health for all our students.

Meet Jennifer, a second grade student at Christel House India. Her father deserted them many years ago and her mother, who used to work as a housemaid, is ill and now unable to work. Jennifer and her little sister seldom have enough food to eat at home.  When it rains their house leaks and they have to bail the water out as if the house were a leaky boat. They rely on the kindness of neighbors to help with their basic needs. Yet, despite all her struggles, Jennifer‘s cheerfulness is contagious.

Jennifer is a hard working student with strong leadership qualities. She loves her teacher, and begins her day by helping set up the classroom for the day.  She is very caring and often helps her classmates with their studies. Jennifer does well academically, has beautiful handwriting and reads well.   She excels in athletics and is also artistically talented.

Jennifer dreams of being a doctor when she grows up and knows that Christel House India will help her realize her dreams. In the two years that she has been attending Christel House India, Jennifer has been transformed from a subdued, timid little girl to a confident and outgoing child –truly a Cinderella story.

It’s because of people like you that girls like Jennifer are achieving their dreams. Thank you again for your continued support of Christel House!
