Update 2017: *Christopher is growing into quite the helpful young man at Victory Home, where he lives! He is even growing a mustache! *Christopher wants to become a worship pastor. He needs $185/month to be fully sponsored. Sign up to sponsor him here.

Update 2015: *Christopher lives in a foster home with some of his foster brothers who also attend school.

Short post today, as I’m on my way out the door!

Today is day 11 of SCH’s 105 in 105 sponsorship campaign, and the spotlight belongs to *Christopher, who is 12! Though *Christopher has hemiplegia and epilepsy,  he is also exceptionally smart, and speaks amazing English! He loves to sing and whistle, and has a beautiful voice. *Christopher attends a mainstream private school that is conducted in English.

Lend a helping hand! Spread the word, sponsor a child.

An important part of SCH’s work is YOU! SCH relies on donations to keep running. Donation opportunities include child sponsors at any cost per month, from as low as $10/month. Sponsorship usually costs between $300 and $500 per child, depending on complexity of needs and which city they live in (Ongole or Hyderabad).

You can sponsor any child who needs additional funding at SCH by using the resources found here. Use these resources to get involved in other ways, such as becoming an advocate or volunteering. You can also become a medical sponsor (ideal for large groups or organizations who wish to support SCH) and donate toward monthly emergency medical expenses; or an educational sponsor and donate toward a specific on-site school. Learn about other ways to give charitably to SCH here, and check back often for additional opportunities.

*A note about names: SCH uses online nicknames for the children in order to protect their identity, per Indian governmental guidelines which state that children in care may not have identifying photos of them on the internet, as well as no identifying information such as birth name, place of origin, etc.

You can also send gifts via Amazon India, make a one-time, general donation, pray if that is your calling, or volunteer at home or in India yourself by using these resources!
