BECOME A CHILD SPONSOR
Make an Eternal Investment
Becoming a sponsor of one or more of these beautiful children allows you to literally make an eternal investment, one you will never regret. These children have either no family or no family member who is willing or able to take care of them, therefore they live at Gentle Shepherd Home. As you pick one special child to connect to specifically, your monthly donation is added to other generous sponsor donations for the benefit and well-being of all the children in the children’s home. Therefore, no child receives funds directly so that all children even those who do not have sponsors benefit.
Child Sponsorship as well as other non-specified general contributions cover the children’s basic needs, food, clothing, and medical. It also provides tuition and other school expenses for their education, as well as salaries for the trained national workers who care for the children. Your sponsorship along with others help to provide the loving environment these children need and deserve.
We have two levels of monthly sponsorship: $50 (half) or $105 (full). You can make monthly or a one-time annual payment through our website, or we can set up automatic monthly donations using a debit/credit card or a bank draft. You can also mail checks: ILS 108 SE Harris, Burleson, TX. 76028. Your donations are tax deductible and you will receive a year end statement.
We ask that you commit to sponsoring your child for at least one year, however our hope is that you will continue until he/she is no longer in need of a sponsor. We ask you to communicate through a brief letter or card once a year and perhaps a card at Christmas. These are to be mailed to us and we will take them to Kenya (we send email reminders). Especially we ask you to pray often, even daily for your child!
Please contact us if you are interested in sponsoring a child or would like more information. See below some of our beautiful children who are in need of sponsors. These pictures were taken in 2019/2020. JUST PICK ONE!
