Christel House is a non-profit school based in Ottery, Cape Town. Christel House pupils are from the surrounding settlements and all experience a life of abject poverty.
Many experience lives affected by social hazards such as violence, gangsterism, abuse and drugs. These challenges are difficult—but every day our pupils come to school, to learn, to gain values and 'grit' needed to succeed when coming from such environments.
Christel House is a place where aspirations and dreams can become a reality.
