105 in 105, day 87: Zoe!


Update 2017: *Zoe lives at Jubilee Home, where she attends on-site school. She takes music class, learns at her own educational level, and learns handicrafts as a vocation. Learn more about the school, New Horizons, as well as donate toward operational costs, here. *Zoe loves to give hugs, sit in your lap, and give, bright heart-warming smiles, as well as playing with dolls, pull string toys, and musical instruments. She needs $260/month more to be fully sponsored! Sponsor here.

Today is cutie-pie *Zoe’s day! *Zoe is described as having a very fun personality and loving to scare people when she’s not in a crowd! Otherwise, *Zoe tends to stay in the background in group situations. She’s quiet and observant, always watching people as they go throughout their day, especially when everyone is in the same place or something big is going on. *Zoe has cerebral palsy, Hirshprung’s disease, and an intellectual disability. *Zoe taught herself to walk only 1 year after coming to SCH in 2009! That’s quite and accomplishment, and she’s continued to make progress ever since. *Zoe sometimes wears gloves, because she likes to chew on her hands and pick at her face, but it doesn’t stop her from being a fun-loving girl. *Zoe loves gauging reactions when she creates a stir – such a mischievous spirit. And, if *Zoe’s on the receiving end of a scare, you’ll get an irresistibly amazing giggle out of her.  She sounds like a lot of fun!

Help *Zoe continue to grow and thrive in a comfortable environment where she feels loved enough to be herself. Consider becoming a sponsorship partner. Sponsorship covers *Zoe’s proper nutrition including good food, clean drinking water, and additional supplements, physical well-being including any medications, additional medical care, or therapies she may need, her ayahs and caregivers, a warm place to sleep and clothes on her back to make her feel pretty and wanted, plus so much more! Partner with SCH in standing behind *Zoe and cheering her on as her village. She has so much more potential and is totally worth it!

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!
