Good Shepherd Home for Children
Bamenda, Cameroon

Founded by Sr. Jane Mankaa and the Benedictine Sisters of Bethany, the Good Shepherd Home is dedicated to educating and caring for children of the streets in Cameroon. Many of these children have lost their parents to the AIDS epidemic. The Home provides a safe environment for them to grow into healthy young men and women.

Over 100 children live at the Good Shepherd Homeand are provided with food, clothing and the education they would not otherwise receive.

Work continues at the Home, and there are many more children who need sponsorships. Donations of any size make a tremendous difference in these children’s live. 100% of the funds donated are used for their designated purpose. 

Here is a special way to help:    

  • Sponsor a child for $30 a month. This will house, feed, clothe and educate a child.

Calvary Church, along with the Community of St. John the Baptist and several other churches in our area, supports the life-changing work at Good Shepherd. Sr. Jane, who had lived and worked at the Community of St. John the Baptist, met Calvary’s Lillian Cochran at a Diocesan Convention. After learning of Sr. Jane’s desire to start the orphanage, Lillian proposed that Calvary help as well. 

Calvarians have helped Good Shepherd purchase land, start a herd of cattle and care for additional children. For more details on our project, contact Lillian Cochran at (908) 273-3919 or at [email protected]
