Welcome to Christel House Europe!


The Christel House Vision: A world where poverty does not limit potential.

Christel House is a holistic model designed to transform the lives of children experiencing poverty. We do this by focusing on the “whole child.”  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 total child.

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. 

Since Christel House's founding, 19,385 students have been served at nine schools around the world in India, Jamaica, Mexico, South Africa and the United States. With your support, Christel House gives students who need the most help the best chance.
