Transformational education changes adolescent lives in Cameroon forever.

Cross Cultural Partnership

Good Shepherd SLF has completed Phase II construction of Good Shepherd Academy, a residential coed secondary/high school in Cameroon, West Africa that prepares young people for living wage employment and/or university. The Academy currently accommodates 100 students and will serve 350 when completed. To achieve this goal, we joined hands in a cross cultural partnership with Good Shepherd Academy Association headquartered in Bamenda, Cameroon. By joining in the vision they brought to us YOU can break the cycle of poverty in Cameroon, West Africa by providing access to quality education in a secondary/high school setting.

Hands together, we are building Good Shepherd Academy.

On prestigious Ring Road in Bafut, Cameroon, Good Shepherd SLF provides full tuition to twenty percent of Academy students, with the orphans of Good Shepherd Home in Cameroon receiving first priority. The Academy is subsidized with the proceeds from sustainable farming, blending educational, poverty reduction, and food security missions. Students work hard to learn the three R’s in the classroom and to master sustainable organic agriculture on the school’s vegetable farms, fish farms, and piggery.

In 2013, the United Nations launched the Global Education First Initiative, focused on secondary school education. Why? Because they know the difference a secondary education makes in developing nations:

  • YOU can help reestablish normality for traumatized children
  • YOU can open doors to the job market
  • YOU can Improve maternal health and environmental solutions
  • YOU can promote tolerance and mutual understanding
