Meet *Aaron, a 17-year-old (in 2019) wonder-boy who lives at Sarah’s Covenant Homes (SCH) in Courage Home Teal, with a foster parent and 12 foster brothers! *Aaron is one of the big brothers of the home.
Former foster-dad Nathan calls *Aaron ‘Resilient *Aaron’, because he is always striving to achieve the next goal. Read on about what Nathan has to say about *Aaron’s recent progress here! He is working on climbing the stairs and walking using a walker and other mobility aids.
*Aaron needs $50/month in sponsorship! Sign up to sponsor him here!
From *Aaron’s sponsorship page:
“With his warm, welcoming smile, *Aaron will be the first to greet you at the front door. His kind heart and sense of humor makes everyone want to be his friend. He attends a fantastic special education school. He has cerebral palsy and is nonverbal, but has no trouble making his point known. *Aaron has made great strides since he came to SCH and is in the process of learning to walk. He, like most boys in the world, enjoys watching things be repaired, and is always willing to lend a hand!”
PD: *Aaron sits on his home’s rooftop w/ a huge smile! He wears a neon-orange t-shirt & thread bracelet on 1 wrist, hands clasped across his chest. “Meet Aaron!” is written on the image & it is cropped, w/ a heart sticker in the bottom left corner.
An important part of SCH’s work is YOU! SCH relies on donations to keep running. Donation opportunities include child sponsorship 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. 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 become an educational sponsor and donate toward a specific on-site school!
Use these resources to get involved, by doing such things as becoming an advocate or volunteering. Also, here is the link to SCH’s general fund. In addition, you can give a one-time donation to any home by visiting each home’s landing page on SCH’s official website, under the heading “Meet Our Kids”! 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 government 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.
