What VPC Means to Us

The Valley Presbyterian Church community's outpouring of support to Squalor to Scholar has enabled us to expand our impact faster and more extensively than we ever anticipated. Thousands of lives have already been directly revolutionized by your generous and loving compassion and our sights are now set on empowering, inspiring, and healing 1 million children by 2025.

What We've Been Up To

We've been hard at work strategizing for the future. Over the past three years, we've learned a lot about the needs of the communities in which we work. We've suffered with families and witnessed the fragility of life in the deaths of many children we failed to help in time. However, we've also watched with extreme pride our nearly 200 three to fifteen-year-old scholars who, when given the freedom to reach for the sky and the opportunities to pursue and achieve dreams they never even imagined before our support, have become unstoppable. 


The next phase of our mission is to roll out a first-of-its-kind telemedicine and digital education lab equipped to transform healthcare and education access for an entire slum of 25,000 people. 

This Lab will be developed and constructed within the secure compound of one of our affiliate schools in Faridabad, India, near one of the largest slums in the area.

It will house an extensive array of donated technology, including more than 50 Apple desktop and laptop computers as well as dozens of iPads, 24/7 high-speed internet, and electricity generation when the grid fails.

The Lab will employ three full-time teachers to help students master navigation of the computers and access online delivery of formal education. 

The Lab will also employ a full-time experienced nurse who will help treat patients with common ailments, conduct extensive basic and preventative health education, help patients navigate the complex Indian healthcare system, and conduct telemedicine consults with both local and international physicians for patients who require more complex care. A physician will also be employed on a regular but part-time schedule.

How Donations will be utilized

100% of the donations toward this campaign will go toward enabling the above project. 50% of donated funds will be used over the next 2 years to develop the facilities and infrastructure necessary as well as employ the teachers, healthcare professionals, security, maintenance, and janitorial staff that the project will necessitate. 

The other 50% of donated funds will be placed in an endowment fund and securely invested to help provide for the continued sustainability of the project in perpetuity.
