Growing up in the slums of India, Christel House India—Bangalore graduate shares her story

In 2012, Angel wrote these words:

I joined Christel House in 4th grade and have been there for the past seven years. Before joining Christel House India, I studied in a school close to where I live. As my parents are daily wagers, they found it hard to pay my school fees. They somehow managed to keep me in school until 3rd grade, but after that, I had to quit school due to a financial crisis at home.

My life has changed completely after joining Christel House. I have gained a lot of confidence and improved in my academics as well.

Christel House has done everything for me, from education to food. We are provided with tasty and nutritious food and our health is taken care of at school. There have been a lot of opportunities which have helped us exhibit our talents.

Overall, my family is very thankful and grateful to Christel DeHaan and all the other people who have changed my life dramatically through Christel House.


Angel graduated from Christel House India—Bangalore in 2013. She is now thriving in college, pursuing a double major in journalism and psychology.

Without the generosity of Christel House donors, Angel would only have a 3rd grade education. But now, her future is very bright. Support from individuals, like you, is changing the direction of children’s lives.

Help us continue creating success stories, like Angel’s, one child at a time.
