Advocating for Kids at SCH, Part III: The Schoolgirls of Joy Home!

This post will consist of all the girls who attend local mainstream schools in the community where Joy Home Pink and Yellow are located, in Hyderabad.

These girls may or may not need higher amounts of sponsorship, because in India, schools are not free – they all require tuition and are mainly private. SCH enrolls as many children as possible into local mainstream or special private schools, because they believe children with disabilities deserve visibility and equal access to a quality education.

To sponsor a child or check the status of their sponsorship in order to sponsor them, use the references here. You can also connect with SCH on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Find SCH’s wEBSITE by clicking the link. You can make a general donation to SCH via PayPal here. To give a one-time, general donation to SCH, follow this link. Information on selling and buying in support of SCH (donating part or all of the proceeds from your items) through eBay and Amazon can be found here.
