NTINGA NTAKA TO FLY AND REACH NEW HEIGHTS

ANNUAL REPORT 2018


Ntinga Ntaka A hungry child is not focused on learning. Equally, a child who is anxious, traumatised or ill is difficult to teach. Christel House South Africa (CHSA) addresses every deficiency in an impoverished child’s life. Our holistic child development model supports students through a character-based and career-focused educational programme to help them become self-sufficient, contributing members of society following graduation. Children at CHSA come from resource-poor communities where few opportunities to break the cycle of poverty exist. At CHSA, our model for social change opens doors for students and prepares them academically, socially and morally to take an active role in building a better future. In seeking to build the workforce of 2030, CHSA starts with character.

Chairman’s report Will Durant, an author of the last century, paraphrased Aristotle when he said “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” CHSA clearly has the habit of excellence. We have just concluded a decade of preparing our learners to take the important first step of passing the National Senior Certificate exams to open the first door to a better future. 100% of each CHSA class for 10 years have passed, an

More than just academics Charanick S. from Manenberg was CHSA’s Valedictorian in 2018 and also the proud recipient of the school’s Knebel Award for Character. Her academic achievement is made all the more remarkable by the fact that she has had to overcome challenges that others may have found overwhelming. In 2016, her grandmother passed away and just a few short months later, she also lost her mother. She says: “I felt like giving up,” but quickly added that the help and support that she received from her classmates, teachers and staff at CHSA, along with character lessons at school, offered a healing perspective.

Best in the field Regular exercise is critical to developing a well-rounded young adult who is ready for the world of work. Some of CHSA’s students have taken this to heart and are soaring to great heights – not just in the classroom, but on the sports field. Zikhona S. is taking her commitment to both academics and sport to the greatest height. After having played rugby for just one year, Zikhona was invited to join the Western Province Schools rugby team and she scored three tries in her very first tournament, helping the team to win the South African national tournament. “Rugby is known to be a rough sport. I was scared of being tackled,” she admits. Encouraged by her family, Zikhona overcame her fears and learned quickly to safeguard herself on the field. She says her rugby success has her considering a career in sports management after she graduates, combining her academic prowess with her love of the game. “Christel House has changed my life tremendously. My peers in Langa don’t have this opportunity,” she says. “I am grateful and want to make a change through sports and in everything I do.” Thimna F. is a Western Province soccer player who helped his team to great success at a national schools tournament in Mossel Bay, while Sibulele B. recently represented Langa Hockey Club at the Indoor Hockey Nationals. As a result of her great performance, she was selected to join the Western Province under-16 hockey team. Leveldro B. is a keen volleyball player, who started playing in grade 7. Now in grade 9, Leveldro is an active member of the Christel House Volleyball Club and is looking forward to many more years of playing, and even teaching others to play this growing sport.

A rare talent Toy-Yiebah C. comes from Manenberg in Cape Town, a Cape Flats community notorious for its gangsterism and violence. She graduated from CHSA in 2017 and is the first graduate to attend the acclaimed Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town. Her career aspiration is to become a professional artist or an art teacher so that she can share the opportunities she got as a student of Christel House. She says, “Christel House has changed my life and I want to do the same for people around me.” Toy-Yiebah was one of the artistic forces behind Christel House’s Spain Art Project. Hotel Pueblo Evita, a newly built hotel in Malaga, commissioned Christel House to produce 75 paintings to be displayed in the hotel’s rooms and foyer. Students were asked to paint artwork depicting Spanish culture. Toy-Yiebah’s work and dedication contributed significantly to the magnificent effort from the talented CHSA art department and we are looking forward to reporting back on her progress as she works towards her degree and dream of becoming South Africa’s next renowned artist.

Healthy body, healthy mind Developing South Africa’s next generation is not as straightforward as just making sure that the quality of education is top class. Ensuring that children’s physical and psychosocial needs are addressed is as important and form the cornerstone of a programme that is pivotal to CHSA’s holistic approach. Nutrition forms the foundation of this intervention. Chronic hunger and malnutrition have long-term developmental effects and also have a debilitating effect on a child’s ability to concentrate in class and

The Christel House multiplier effect: Changing communities In July 2018, Zanele S., grade 11 student at Christel House, participated in a five-day ‘Routes to Resilience’ residential immersion programme, hosted by the Cape Town-based non-profit organisation, The Impact Trust in collaboration with the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership in South Africa. In doing so, Zanele launched her own social project to help teenage girls overcome the many challenges they face as young women growing up in poverty. The Routes to Resilience programme aims to provide students with a deeper understanding of complexity, systems and system-thinking. Participants engaged with their personal purpose in identifying meaningful issues that they could address in a planned and executed social project. These projects are then closely supported by faculty mentors from Routes to Resilience. The project encouraged its participants to address those Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) they felt strongly about. Following her successful completion of the course, Zanele launched her social action project called ‘Classe de Chica’ in Women’s Month – an auspicious time to engage with girls in her community. Through ‘Classe de Chica’ Zanele identifies issues faced by her teen peers and arranges speakers, workshop sessions and other activities to help them navigate their challenges. Zanele’s mission is to support and inspire the confidence, health and well-being of girls in her community.

16


“I developed this project because I feel it will have a positive impact on the young girls in my community. There are no other organisations in the area doing this work. I want to address the problem of gender inequality. I want to help decrease the rate of depression and anxiety amongst girls. I also want to help them let go of the mentality of hopelessness and the belief that they don’t have a future because of their backgrounds. I want these girls to have a positive outlook on life,” Zanele explained. So far, 18 girls have participated in Zanele’s ‘Classe de Chica’, demonstrating how the impact of Christel House multiplies far beyond our doors.

Reasons to partner with Christel House

UNEQUALLED EDUCATION: We only serve children living in abject poverty and expect only the best of them. Through our high quality education, character development programme, our comprehensive wrap around service and passion to make a difference, our students consistently outperform all their peers multiplefold. 95% EMPLOYMENT: We focus on STEAM and related career paths, boast a 100% matric pass rate and 95% post school engagement. Our grade 3, 6, and 9 systemic test results have always beaten the Quintile 5 school averages and consistently outstrip provincial averages by over 400%. 100% IMPACT: We are a non-profit organisation. All contributions are tax deductible in terms of Section 18A and given that 100% of our beneficiaries are black, a 100% of your donation counts towards your B-BBEE points. As all our administrative and fundraising costs are covered by our founder, every rand you donate directly benefits our students. LONG-TERM PARTNERSHIPS: Our donors don’t just donate, they build long-term bonds with our students through our scholarship and mentorship programmes. Donors and partners are recognised on our website, in our annual reports, through events and on social media. BREAKING THE CYCLE OF POVERTY. FOREVER: We open our doors to our students in ways that few other institutions are able. Our mission of transforming the lives of impoverished children is carried into the home communities and families of the students, creating a multiplier effect that exponentially increases our reach.

EduKite competition winners: Seven years of soaring high! The Cape Town International Kite Festival took place on 27 and 28 October 2018 at Zandvlei Nature Reserve, Muizenberg. Appropriately, the theme for the festival’s EduKite competition was Rise Up – to highlight that everyone is born with the potential to rise up and overcome the challenges in their lives. Each school team received a set of four blank kite skins to illustrate with their interpretation of the theme – Rise Up. CHSA’s Junior School team won first prize – for the seventh year in a row.
