Meet *Brent! He’s an adorable 6-year-old boy who attends mainstream school. He’s not at all shy and loves to use you to flip himself over! He’s described as having an amazing amount of energy and loves to rough-house and wrestle and do anything that involves high-energy playing, which is great. He’s really ticklish too. Brent came to SCH with a disorder called anorectal agenesis, but it has since been repaired and he is now totally healthy. He’s so cute and definitely thriving!
From his sponsorship page:

Other Details About Me: I had anorectal agenesis, which has since been repaired. I am an active kid who loves playing tag.
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 $25/month. Sponsorship usually costs between $300 and $500 per child, depending on complexity of needs and in which city they live (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!
