Our Lavasa Girls are Growing

Our first year at Christel House Lavasa has made quite an impact. The children, grades K-2, are progressing unbelievably well. Most can comprehend basic English and have cultivated a sense of hygiene. They are eating much better and as a result have gain an average of 3 kilos.

The children are learning to read in English as well, and have developed reading and comprehension skills that are improving by the day. Most of the Grade 2 children are able to carry on simple conversations with their teachers. Socially, they have become quite confident and energetic. They are a happy and respectful group of children, using “please” and “thank you” on a regular basis.

Our girls at Christel House Lavasa have grown in so many different ways. It has been so exciting to witness their eagerness to learn, while watching their development socially, physically, academically and emotionally.

This year we have 66 girls in the Christel House Lavasa program, 24 in the kindergarten class, 27 in first grade and 15 in second grade. We will continue to expand the school each year.

Thank you for your continued support.  We truly are breaking the cycle of poverty, one child at a time.
