Update 2018: *Amulya now lives at Faith Home with foster sisters close to her age, including her twin sister *Dhivena. She attends on-site school, where she learns to make handicrafts in vocational classes, attends a music class, and learns at her own educational level. *Amulya’s favourite place is the beach!
Learn more about the school, New Horizons School, as well as donate toward operational costs, here.
She still needs $275/month to be fully sponsored. You can sign up to sponsor *Amulya here, and then you’ll get to hear about her and all she’s doing, quarterly!
Do you remember earlier in the campaign, when *Dhivena was in the spotlight? Well, today’s featured child is her twin sister, *Amulya! *Amulya is also 15, and has a beautiful smile. She’s always ready to welcome visitors to SCH. *Amulya has cerebral palsy, for which she recently received surgery to improve her mobility, and intellectual disability. *Amulya and *Dhivena are both so pretty. *Amulya is described as an exuberant young lady who loves to laughand giggle, and is always smiling. Both girls have aged out of the system for adoption, which means they’ll be enjoyed at SCH for years to come. What a gift!
*Amulya has come so far with her mobility – when she came to SCH, she scooted around on her knees, because they were so tight from neglect in the government orphanage. After a complicated and painful surgery to help release he knees, she walks and even runs! *Amulya has had lots of improvement, but there is always room for more! Such a joyful person is surely an amazing gift to SCH. I love these girls. ❤
Will you consider sponsoring *Amulya? Her sister *Dhivena is already on her way to full sponsorship… let’s help both of them get there!

Spread the word, sponsor a child. Come see what love can do at SCH.
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 $25/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!
