Antigua and Barbuda / Charity Support

The Definitive Caribbean Charity Support Scheme has chosen to work with the Good Shepherd Home for Children on Antigua. The Home provides shelter and care to children, mainly girls, who are without guidance and support and who are being abused in their present environment to such an extent that it hampers their physical, emotional, social and mental development.

The intake age is between 5 and 12 years. There are occasional exceptions for younger children, and boys are only accepted as part of a family unit, and then only until they are 4 years old. The Home needs further funding to be able to reach more children and to allow them the opportunity to be reintegrated into society to lead a full and rewarding life.
