Shepherd of the Hills Children's Foundation, (SOTH) is a Christian child care and child development organization focusing on children and youth who are in need, abandoned, neglected, orphaned, dependent, & underprivileged. They also teach music, arts & vocational skills like baking. We have visited since 1999 and many of us have fallen in love with the children. Here is an opportunity to provide educational sponsorships for children at SOTH as well as children from the local community.
Shepherd of Hills Children's Home has been one of Airline Ambassadors favorite destinations since 1999. Normally we visit the orphanage with a large team every April and October so many of us have fallen in love with the children. It is expensive to pay for school lunches, uniforms and teachers salaries & we have provided for that through our sponsorship program . There are more children at SOTH and many in the local community have no support and this is a way to provide for that expense.
By giving our members a way to support the expenses of uniforms, meals and teachers salaries we meet the need for the children at Shepherd of the Hills and children in the surrounding community to get a good education. Sponsors also get a benefit as our Sponsorship Coordinator Christine Page, keeps each sponsor up to date on their child via updated pictures and letters. Because of Covid we could not visit in 2020, but coordinated a virtual mission so sponsors could connect directly.
There are many impoverished communities worldwide, but sometimes it takes just one person, or an organization of people, to rise up and help another survive, and our AAI teams have been able to sponsor many of the children at SOTH, but there are a few more as well as many children in the local community who need support to get a healthy lunch and the opportunity for a good education. Most importantly, we are giving the gift of hope. We need your help!
