Transforming children's lives by breaking the cycle of poverty

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. We don’t just educate, or feed, or provide health care—we do all of these things—from early childhood through early adulthood. We develop the “whole 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.
