Challenge

Jamaica is a land of extremes. Not far from wealthy enclaves, significant numbers of Jamaicans live in squalor, suffering from poor housing, limited food supply and inadequate access to clean water, quality health care or education. In these Jamaican households, more than half of the family income is spent to purchase food and beverages for daily survival. The Jamaican government is committed to educating its children, but there are not enough schools to provide opportunities for all.

Solution

Christel House works to break the cycle of poverty for children - over 180 students with top-quality K-2 education. Because we understand that a child needs to be whole and healthy to reach success, we provide students with daily nutrition, regular health care, and character / life skills development. We continue our support after graduation, helping students transition in higher education and employment. Giving kids who need the most help the best chance.

Long-Term Impact

Christel House gives kids who need the most help the best chance. Breaking the cycle of poverty impacts the student, their family, and future generations. We also teach every child that they have the obligation to give back and make the world a better place. This multiplier effect will ultimately transform communities.
