Truth Home: Current Needs!


PD: A girl stands against a white wall, wearing a traditional Indian sari that is hot pink, blue, & gold w/ paisley accents & sparkly glitter. Her hands are at her sides, wearing blue bangles.

Welcome to a post all about the current needs of Truth Home!

Truth Home serves as a home to 11 boys and young men in Ongole. A few Truth Home boys attend school off-site, while the majority receive on-site tutoring and one-on-one physical therapy. Truth Home was originally one of SCH’s first homes, but was then closed as the majority of our children shifted to Faith Home. Today, Truth Home has reopened to better-accommodate the needs of our boys and young men.

Birthday Support!

Did you know you can sponsor a birthday party for a child who lives at Truth home?? It’s a fantastic, easy way to donate and ensure each child is thoroughly celebrated! Each month prior, the next month’s birthdays will appear on the birthday sponsorship page! For example, in early July, birthdays will be posted for August.

“Birthdays are a big deal around here and with 130 kids, there are many reasons to celebrate. Our Birthday Program was created to provide you with a way to bless our kids in a very special way on their special day. Give to our birthday fund to help us provide a cake and memories to share for years to come. For a donation of any amount to our birthday fund, you will receive an email with highlights from the party that you sponsored. A donation of just $10 will cover a cake for the birthday child to enjoy!”

  • February: *Josh
  • May: *Asher
  • July: *Bennett, *Brent

  • General needs: here

An important part of SCH’s work is YOU! SCH relies on donations to keep running. Donation opportunities include child sponsors 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. 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 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.

PD: the SCH logo – black text reads ‘sch’; red text below reads ‘sarah’s covenant homes’; heart-shaped flowers bloom from the name.
