Half Marathon Charity Entries available with Christel House South Africa


RUN FOR CHRISTEL HOUSE SOUTH AFRICA

Established in 1998, Christel House is an international charity with a single mission: to break the cycle of poverty. Poverty touches every aspect of a child’s life, determines their future and almost always leave them trapped in a spiral of unemployment and continued poverty. Today, more than 30 million South Africans (55% of the population) are living in poverty (StatsSA). 

 

Christel House offers no-fee scholarships to students from some of Cape Town’s most impoverished communities and provides them with quality education, health care, daily meals, guidance counselling, college and careers support, and daily transportation to the school. Every child attending Christel House comes from an extremely poor community situated in one of the 20 peri-urban, township and high-density living areas we serve in Cape Town where crime, poverty and violence are rife.


Christel House South Africa (CHSA) enrolls 750 students from grades R to 12 annually and supports more than 250 matric graduates up to five years after they have matriculated. We have achieved a 100% matric pass rate since inception and 91% of our graduates are either studying, working or doing both. In doing so, Christel House breaks the cycle of poverty and delivers students that become self-sustaining, contributing members of society.


FEED A FUTURE: 2019 TWO OCEANS MARATHON CAMPAIGN

We at Christel House South Africa are launching our Feed a Future fundraising campaign in December 2018 in aid of our nutrition program. As a key component of our model, we provide two meals and a snack daily to each of our 750 students.


GO THE EXTRA MILE

It costs R180 000 to provide a nutritious breakfast to all our students for one year at R1.20 per breakfast meal and 150 000 breakfast meals in total. As such, our aim is to raise R180 000 through TOMI to help us to provide 150 000 breakfast meals to our 750 students for the entire year. Each runner is asked to raise a minimum amount of R1 800 through crowd fundraising https://www.givengain.com/cc/feed-a-future/
