Gift tuition and medical expenses of a poor child

Impact

Khadarali continues to succeed despite poverty.

Khadarali is a young boy from a slum in Bangalore. His parents work as tailors and earn a meagre amount every day. They did not even have enough money to pay for their basic needs.

Khadaralli was a bright boy filled with a desire to learn and grow. But he did not have the opportunity to go to school. His education was a financial burden that his family could not carry.

When Christel House found him, they wanted to change this for him. The Social Service team from Christel House visited the slum and encouraged his parents to send him to school. They told them how education was important for Khadarali. They helped them understand that education would open different possibilities for him in the future.

CHLC provided quality education for Khadarali. He is an outstanding student and enjoys taking part in school activities. He joined Taekwondo classes and went on to win the gold medal at the National Taekwondo Competition. He was also selected to attend a fully sponsored Summer Leadership camp in Culver, Indianapolis, USA.

A little financial help is all a child like Khadarali needs to set him flying. Your donation could give a poor child a chance to excel. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.

Story from the field

Our first medical doctor! Dr. Shaik Reshma is a 2012 Christel House India graduate. “Becoming a doctor was my dream since childhood,” Dr. Reshma says. She will work as an intern at a local hospital then do a year of rural service. Her father worked as a driver and her mother looked after the home and her four siblings. Her father struggled to make ends meet. When she joined Christel House, she was shy, reserved and lacked confidence. Christel House helped her to come out of her shell and believe that she could achieve and succeed. With the help of the College & career program, she perused the education needed to become a doctor. The school provided her with a scholarship throughout her undergraduate education.
