Update 2018: *Isaac lives at Truth Home. He is described as a kind and gentle young man. He still loves to sing and continues to attend a mainstream private school in the community. He needs $310/month more in sponsorship funds, and you can sign up to sponsor him here.
*Isaac’s a handsome schoolboy – and this is one smart cookie! He has such a sweet singing voice that he uses all the time. *Issac’s 10 years old, and has an eye condition called nystagmus, which makes his eyes ‘vibrate’ or be unable to focus. *Issac attends mainstream private school.
*Isaac is described as an energetic, helpful, funny, sweet, playful, and a little bit mature. He helped *Judah (who has since been adopted!) direct photoshoots by retrieving children as it became their turn to have pictures snapped. Although Isaac is responsible and mature for his age, he also loves to play tag! *Isaac’s sweet singing voice and personality, coupled with his excellent education, will ensure that *Isaac goes far in life! Maybe he will be famous one day.
General sponsorship funds go toward food, water, medical care if needed, ayahs and foster parents to take care of him, a nice place to sleep, and so much more. It tells Isaac that he has people from all over the world in his personal corner, rooting for him to succeed and contributing to the improvement of his life through education and all the care he needs. Become a warrior for *Isaac!

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 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!
