Being orphaned in Africa is a death sentence to a child. The goal at Shepherd Care is to provide a place for them to lay their head, meals to eat, an education, someone to love them, and spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. Blessings like that are miracles to the orphans in Africa.
Groups come to Shepherd Care several times a year for a variety of ministry areas. Teaching, farming, building, health care and more are just some of the areas that visitors can support the work.
Not only are we striving to meet the physical needs, but the opening of Bender School brought a new level of opportunity through a K-12 education. We've been blessed with incredible teachers and staff that pour into the children each day.
With the addition of acreage for farming, the programs of Bender School can expand to include Agriculture and Livestock Education. Fish production is on the horizon...we just have to figure out how to make it happen. The farm will also help provide better nutrition options.
