Good Shepherd (Santiago) Higher Education


The Orphan Outreach sponsorship program provides critical financial and prayer support for children served by this partner ministry. The funding provides for different needs based on the ministry site and includes, but is not limited to support for food, clothing, medical and educational needs, as well as support for the ministry to provide better care for the children. Sponsorships also provides the sponsor with a personal relationship and connection with their child to help them know they are loved, prayed for and that they have hope in a heavenly Father.

Monthly sponsorship is $36 a month. Each program we support has varied numbers of children. We provide single (1) or double (2) sponsorships per child based on those numbers. Our programs sites with smaller fewer numbers of children need the extra support an additional sponsorship provides. The children in this program are available for 2 sponsor(s). Some sponsors commit to becoming a “double” sponsor and providing $72 a month for their child. Many children available for double sponsorship have 2 different sponsors. They are so thankful to be loved and prayed for by more than one sponsor!
