The event was attended by hundreds of students, parents, and supporters. Christel House India – Naya Raipur joins schools in Nayaraipur and Bangalore.

“Educating and empowering underprivileged children in Naya Raipur become self-sufficient, productive citizens will support India’s economic and social growth,” says Ms. DeHaan. “Naya Raipur is one of the early ‘smart cities’ in India.

Christel House Selected by Government of Chhattisgarh, India, to Run School for Underprivileged Children

In a ringing endorsement of the agenda to provide education to all Indian children, the government of the state of Chhattisgarh in north central India will provide Christel House with the land, building and infrastructure to establish a third school in India to serve impoverished children. The new project will be located in Naya Raipur, a purpose-built city where state government is also located.

According to Amit Kataria, CEO, Naya Raipur Development Authority, “Sustainable transformation for the poor sections of the society is the top agenda for the government of Chhattisgarh. We have chosen Christel House because we have personally seen its work and the quality of its operations in both Bangalore and Nayaraipur.”

Christel House was established in Bangalore in 2001 by business-entrepreneur-turned-philanthropist Christel DeHaan to transform the lives of children by breaking the cycle of poverty. The mission of Christel House is to help children become responsible members of society by providing robust K–12 education, character development, healthcare and nutrition, family assistance, career guidance and job placement.

Today, Christel House graduates are pursuing university degrees in medicine, engineering, commerce and technology. Several have already landed jobs with companies such as Hewlett Packard, ORACLE, Northern Trust and Oberoi Hotels.
