Update 2018: *Nathan needs $260/month to be fully sponsored. You can sign up to sponsor him here.
Update 2017: *Nathan just recently moved into SCH’s newest home, Truth Home. He loves to sit outside in his customized wheelchair on breezy nights and look at nature. *Nathan receives physiotherapy 6x/week and attends special education classes on-site.
Today’s featured child of the day is cutie *Nathan! *Nathan is 10 years old and has cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and an intellectual disability. I don’t know too much about him, but he seems like such a sweet child. I love his cute bedhead on one side of his head. Nathan sits with support and has a mild, gentle personality. He has the biggest smile – if you can capture it on camera, it’s golden. He’s a heart-melter.
Are you one of *Nathan’s sponsors? Sponsorship pays for food, shelter, medical care and physiotherapy, clean drinking water, and so much more!
Come see what love can do at SCH – every child is worth it!

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!
