Update: *Nora has been adopted!
Update: *Nora is fully sponsored! Mountain moved 🙂
Today’s child of the day is *Nora!
Know what? Before *Nora came to SCH, she didn’t think she deserved love. Can you imagine how terrible that must have felt? How lonely and depressing it must have been? Now, imagine you’re a eight-year-old girl who has these thoughts. Such a bleak future!
This was *Nora nearly a year ago. But guess what. With love, care, tenderness and encouragement, *Nora doesn’t feel this way any more! She knows that people will love her, unconditionally, and she doesn’t have to do a thing to receive it. Can you imagine if everyone in the world thought like *Nora did just one year ago?
*Nora is a stunningly beautiful nine-year-old girl who is described as being as helpful as can be, even if she doesn’t have to be – not to mention super spunky, fun, smart, deep-thinking, beautifully smiling. The list goes on and on – all the adjectives in my last sentence were pulled directly from her 105 in 105 campaign blog post, where she is described by current volunteer, (and blog writer) Tisra. *Nora is helpful by nature, without needing to be asked – because that’s just the person she is. She sounds like such an amazing little girl. *Nora attends a mainstream private school.

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).
To sponsor any child who still lives at SCH and needs additional funding, use 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!
