Christel Club Education Fund

by Christel House South Africa


Christel House is an independent School set up with the Mission of "Breaking the Cycle of Poverty" and we do this by educating impoverished children and teaching parents practical skills. There are 753 Learners from Grade R to Grade 12 and over the 7 years where learners have graduated, we have enjoyed consistent academic success with 100% NSC pass rate and 85% achieving Bachelor passes. 95% of all our Graduates are either studying at 3rd Level Universities or gainfully employed. Please support.

Poverty rates in South Africa are extreme, but difficult to define. Using a single income measure tells us nothing about how resources are distributed between family members, or how money is spent. But it does give some indication of how many children are living with severely constrained resources. It is in response to the poverty and education crisis outlined above that Christel House, a public benefit organisation (PBO), was established in 2002. Christel House's mission is to "transform lives


Christel House has realised that its constituents face significant challenges in receiving a quality education. These are the obstacles that the Christel House model purposefully addresses. The school provides learners with nutritional support - breakfast, lunch and a snack are provided daily. The school also provides a health centre for basic medical care and social workers for learners and their families.

Long-Term Impact

Several qualities differentiate the Christel House holistic child development model from other educational support models in the market. These differentiators have been consciously designed to support the goal of breaking the cycle of poverty within the communities in which its learners originate from. The multiplier effect will ensure that we work with the children, their families and their communities, over 10 000 people
