Amelia Spence lends a helping hand at Christel House, India

Bangalore, India. Amelia Spence, a keen humanitarian and daughter of Karma’s Global Chairman, John Spence, recently spent part of her summer break as an in-house volunteer for international children’s charity Christel House.

Over the course of a week, Spence spent time working with some 300 students of Christel House’s Bangalore campus. According to Christel House India CEO Jaison C Matthew, Spence’s help proved a hit with staff and students alike.

“We are extremely grateful to Amelia for spending part of her summer break volunteering with us,” says Matthew. “She did an outstanding job of assisting our children in art, reading and sports activities.”

Spence also visited a slum and got to see the day to day living conditions of many of Christel House’s students. Despite the challenges the children face working to break the cycle of poverty in one of the world’s most populous – and poor – urban centres, Spence says their happiness and positivity shine through.

“It was so amazing seeing how energetic all the children were. The work Christel house is doing is extremely important.”

At an end of year ceremony, Spence awarded a number books and prizes to ‘toppers’ in each class, from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Toppers are children who have excelled in learning over the year. In preparation for the event, she spent several days hand picking each book.

“It’s a way of recognising students who have really performed well during the year, and it encourages students to set higher targets and perform better, as well as helping to form the habit of reading, which translates into higher academic achievement over a period of time,” says a Christel House spokesperson.
