Proceeds will be donated to Christel House which is a not for profit organisation, registered under section 25 of the Companies Act of 1956 and a charity registered under section 12A of the Income Tax Act 1961.
Christel House helps children break free from the cycle of poverty, realize their hopes and dreams and become self sufficient, contributing members of society.
It does this by running schools and vocational training programs to help young people gain employment and become self sufficient.
Children don’t choose to be born into poverty. Most grow up never realizing their human potential. Instead, they face physical and psychological trauma, hunger, malnutrition, disease, low self-esteem and lack of opportunity. Christel House is a holistic model designed to transform the lives of impoverished children. We do this by focusing on the whole child. We don’t just educate, or feed, or provide healthcare, we do all of these things, from early childhood through early adulthood. We develop the total child.
The mission of Christel House is to help children around the world break the cycle of poverty, realize their hopes and dreams and become self-sufficient, contributing members of society. A Christel House Learning Center is a place for children to grow, to develop and to achieve dignity and success. It is a place where children learn the values of respect, responsibility, independence and integrity, develop a love of learning and maximize their human potential.
High measures of accountability, complete transparency and rigorous business practices define Christel House as a charity. All donor contributions go directly to fund children’s programming; our Founder covers overhead and fundraising expenses.
