The Christel House India - Bangalore school population currently numbers nearly 900 children in Grades KG to XII. All the children who come to Christel House are from slums, shelters and low-income neighborhoods. Christel House largely caters to the slum population, which is migrant population, settled in the city for more than 5-10 years. We ensure that the total monthly income of the community admitted to Christel House is below Rs. 7,500/- per month with an average of 5 members in the family (per capita is Rs. 1,500/- per month). Christel House is secular in nature.
We are committed to ensure a high success rate of these children breaking their cycle of poverty and attaining self-sufficiency. By giving these children the gift of education we will be creating a lasting systemic change. These funds would come a long way and would be utilized towards good library books that will impart lasting knowledge to the children of Christle House India.
