Today’s featured child is *Victoria! I love her! *Victoria is an amazing girl. She is spunky, loves getting attention, and is very RAMBUNCTIOUS! Victoria, as I mentioned yesterday, is almost completely blind, with only a tiny amount of residual vision, but that sure doesn’t slow her down AT ALL! She’s learning English and is happy, joyous and LOUD! And by loud, I mean both volume-wise and a loud personality!
What a joy it would be to be able to get her full sponsorship, she deserves it! *Victoria had a couple other birth defects (a club foot and clinodactyly – fingers bent in the wrong direction) which have since been surgically repaired, and BEAUTIFULLY might I add! She received a prosthetic eye last year to help keep her face symmetrical, boost her self esteem, and help her fit in! She is beautiful with or without it, in any case. Let’s give her the accomplishment of full sponsorship so she can reach her educational goals!
Sponsor *Victoria and watch her grow!!!

Spread the word, sponsor a child! SCH is doing great things!
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!
