In January 2020, we will be welcoming 60 brand new Grade R learners to Christel House, who will be embarking on an exciting new journey with us.

For most parents, the words ‘Back to School’ are daunting - given how expensive life is today. As you can imagine, for Christel House parents the situation is even more challenging.

We need your help. We've just launched our #GiveaHandUp campaign, which will ensure that our little ones have all they need to start their new school year. With the giving season upon us, we’re asking your help to raise funds for our Grade R starter kits. The kit includes school shoes, a summer uniform, stationery, books and fortified porridge that contains essential nutrients for growing children, especially for those who are undernourished.

Your donation of R150, R500 or R1200 (the price of a full starter kit), will ensure that our Grade R's get the HandUp they need. To donate, click on the button below.



Just a reminder that all South African donors are eligible to receive a tax-deductible 18A certificate and companies can receive B-BBEE points for their contributions as 100% of Christel House's beneficiaries are Black. For any queries, contact Bongiwe Sipunzi on 021 704 9406 or
