How Christel House has Changed My Life

How Christel House Has Changed My Life

By Angel Kumar

I joined Christel House in 4th grade and have been there for the past seven years. Before join CHI, I studied in a school close to where I live. As my parents are daily wages, they found it hard to pay my school fee. They somehow managed to keep me in school till 3rd grade. But after that I had to quit school due to financial crisis at home.

My life has changed completely after joining Christel House. I have gained a lot of confidence and have improved in my academics as well.

Christel House has provided everything for me, from education to food. We are fed tasty and nutritious food and our health is taken care of too. There have been lots of opportunities to exhibit our talents. To top it all is the opportunity I’ve had to attend the world’s number one leadership camp at Culver, Indiana through a scholarship provided by a generous donor. At Culver, we are taught leadership qualities and we get to know students from all around the world. Visiting the United States was always a dream of mine. The Culver experience has helped me to face hurdles boldly and not run away from them.

My family is very thankful and grateful to Christel DeHaan Ma’am and all the people who have changed my life dramatically through Christel House.
