Won’t you help support *Glory so she continues to thrive and grow, and so someday you may have the privilege of meeting her in all her, well, glory?
This sponsorship pays for *Glory’s nutritious food, clean drinking water, and supplements; it pays for her general medical care, medications for her epilepsy, and physiotherapy; it pays for her ayah and the nurses, volunteers, and other staff that all contribute to taking care of her; it pays for her safe resting place where she is surrounded by the love of people rooting for her. Sponsorship will do so much for *Glory, and she will never have to know the feeling of ‘going without’ ever again.
*Glory’s life matters! She is worthy of love and sponsorship! I want to shout from the rooftops that *Glory, and every other child and young adult at SCH, has intrinsic value not based on their abilities or disabilities – whatever they may be. Everyone deserves to be loved.
Become a part of SCH’s family, and *Glory’s village, by pledging to sponsor her. If sponsorship isn’t possible for you, please SHARE this story so that maybe someone you know will be able to help financially. Every little bit counts! Anything you can do to help continue to improve the quality of the children’s lives at SCH is a positive thing.

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 monthly child sponsors at any cost per month, from as low as $10/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!
