2020: Generosity Brings Healing

We stand together in unity, and our generosity to others makes us connected with the power to heal. In a year of great uncertainty, we know this to be true.

As the early morning sun illuminates its blue and yellow buildings, Good Shepherd Academy in Bafut, Cameroon comes alive. Despite the ravages of a civil war and the continuing pandemic, our students and faculty have returned to campus, eager to continue their education.

At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings us together with people of all races, faiths, and political views.

Generosity can give everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of our fellow world citizens. Your gifts to GSA this year will powerfully unlock dignity, opportunity, and equity for our students and their families.

Our gift catalogue this season reflects our commitment to growing and strengthening the advancement of our students, particularly in areas of music and textile arts. These programs will make Good Shepherd Academy a unique educational experience among similar schools in Cameroon.

Let us make this the year remembered not for a worldwide pandemic but for worldwide generosity and good will. Our Good Shepherd SLF Family, Sr. Jane Mankaa, our Cameroonian GSA Board and most especially, our Cameroonian children, continue to be deeply grateful for your support.

And there’s more! Each item (with the exception of computers) will be purchased in Cameroon, providing much-needed support to the local economy, doubling the benefit of your gift.
