Thank you for your support. Together, we are building sports fields for over 700 impoverished children and their communities in Cape Town, South Africa. Great strides have been made towards giving our kids a safe place to play. We could not do this valuable work without your support.

Globally, we have raised over $128,000 for this project.

The sports fields at Christel House South Africa are scheduled to be built in four phases and will cost an additional $145,000 to complete. Phase I will include cricket fields and a set of netball/basketball courts. Phase I has been fully funded and is in the beginning stages of construction. Thank you for your support in helping to accomplish this great milestone.

If you are interested in continuing your support of students at Christel House South Africa, please check out our project for graduates, “Help South African H.S. Grads Attend College.”

Thank you again for your support!
