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.
