Update: *Judah has been adopted!
Today I’m so glad for you to meet *Judah! *Judah is the little helper at SCH. This 7 year old boy is going to be a world leader some day! *Judah attends mainstream school. This boy is incredible! Originally misdiagnosed as having an intellectual disability, *Judah has absolutely no disability. You can’t even imagine how much is birth parents are missing out on – this is one bright boy destined for greatness!
When SCH was still organizing the sponsorship campaign, *Judah was sitting in the ‘director’ chair, making sure every child got his or her photo taken! He is always ready to help in any way he can, and he loves to be right in the middle of the commotion. Sounds like all boy to me! He’s described as confident, independent, bright, mischievous, and also cuddly. He’s a great singer! Can’t wait til I can get to SCH and hear his sweet giggle (though by that time, he may be a grown man, the CEO of an important company)! I have big dreams for this little boy.
Can you contribute to helping him succeed with a monthly donation? Or if you can’t give, can you help spread the world about this amazing treasure?
From his sponsorship page:
Birth Date: December 2004

Other Details About Me: I have no disability; I was misdiagnosed as [having an] intellectual disability. I am energetic and playful. I attend school.
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!
