Many children in India come from a background where there is not enough food, says Christel House India CEO Jaison C. Mathew. “One of the key elements of our model is the nutritional program,” he says. 54% of children in India are malnourished according to research from the United Nations. “Christel House serves breakfast, lunch and a healthy snack to 1,500 students at Christel House India in Bangalore and Atal Nagar. For Mathew, seeing Christel House India students grow, graduate and get good jobs is rewarding. “Breaking the cycle of poverty – that is what gives me satisfaction,” he says.
