105 in 105, day 57: *Luke!

PD: A girl stands against a white wall, wearing a traditional Indian sari that is hot pink, blue, & gold w/ paisley accents & sparkly glitter. Her hands are at her sides, wearing blue bangles.

Update 2018:

*Luke needs $270/month to be fully sponsored. Sign up to sponsor him here! Sponsors receive quarterly updates (that’s 4x/year!) on the child(ren) they sponsor.

From his sponsorship page:

*Luke is a gentle, quiet soul with an intellectual disability. He loves to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. *Luke recently learned to ride a bike for the first time, and loves going for rides. He attends mainstream school and is doing very well in his classes.

Update 2017:

*Luke lives at Victory Home and attends mainstream private school. He has recently learned how to ride a bike!

Original post:

Today’s child is *Luke!

*Luke is a quiet 8-year-old boy who loves to help *Jodi (needs $60/month) or *Nolan (needs $5/month; also available for international adoption and listed with adoption advocacy website Reece’s Rainbow under the same name) walk in their walkers.

*Luke came to SCH about a year ago (in 2011), and was one of the first new children enrolled in mainstream private school! *Luke has an intellectual disability and a sweet demeanor, and loves hugs. I love *Luke’s smile! He’s described as one of the first children to happily greet you with a hug and his soft smile.

Are you one of *Luke’s sponsors?

Basic sponsorship covers everyday needs like medicine, food, clothes, and any therapies or other basic things he may need.

Make sure *Luke can continue to thrive in school and become a successful adult by considering a monthly donation to his sponsorship.

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. You can 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.

*A note about names: SCH uses online nicknames for the children in order to protect their identity, per Indian government 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.

PD: the SCH logo – black text reads ‘sch’; red text below reads ‘sarah’s covenant homes’; heart-shaped flowers bloom from the name.
