Advocating for Kids at SCH, Part VI: Victory Home!


This post will consist of all the children and young men who live at Victory Home in Ongole. The boys at Victory home are mostly older boys who have cognitive delays, autism, and developmental delays, as well as other disabilities. They participate in a vocational program at on-site school where they make envelopes and package spices to be able to sell as a sustainability project.

Sponsorship helps SCH to be able to secure proper medical care for them, as well as all the other essentials for living the happiest, healthiest lives possible in a supportive environment that caters to their specific needs.
