Update: *Genevieve has been adopted and now lives in America with her loving family! Yay, *Genevieve! She is the second child to be internationally adopted from SCH, just after *Stacy. 40+ adoptions have followed as of 2018.
Today’s featured child is *Genevieve! She is 4 years old. She attends mainstream private preschool. *Genevieve is so curious and spunky! She was born with a cyst on her eye, which has since been repaired, but left her with vision in one eye. It doesn’t slow her down a bit!
*Genevieve is the leader of the little ones – she’s always inventing new games and coming up with new ideas (like ‘doing the laundry’ in the toilet!). What an imagination this little girl has. This princess is such a blessing and has an opportunity to shine at SCH.
The nurturing she gets in this environment will last a lifetime – *Genevieve’s creativity has the potential to take her so far in life. Who knows what *Genevieve will create? SCH gives her a chance to find out. Maybe one day she’ll be an inventor, an artist, a problem solver… you name it.
Spread the word, sponsor a child.
To learn how you can help a child or young adult who currently lives at SCH, read on.
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!
