A new school: Room to play, learn and grow

On a trip to Mexico City in 1998, Christel DeHaan quickly realized that impoverished children need more than clothes and food. They need tools to help them break the cycle of poverty. Later that year, the first Christel House learning center opened in Mexico City—Christel House Mexico.

Our school, which serves 400 students in grades 1–9, has outgrown its urban campus. Soon, thanks to a generous donor, we will move to a new location with room for a pre-first grade, a high school and green space, including a soccer field and outdoor basketball courts.

The new school will double the number of students we serve.

The transition to the new location is a huge undertaking. Our students need supplies, furniture and computers. They need new teachers, new technology, and someone to mow the grass they never had at the original school.
