New GSIF Branch Strengthens the Good Shepherd Mission in Nepal

Nepal still remains one of the world’s poorest country, whose economic, social and enviromental conditions have become extremely fragile, in the wake of 2015 massive earthquake and the widespread damaging floods and landslides that occurred last year.

Good Shepherd sisters’s Opportunity Village since 1998 continues to help Nepalese responding to the local communities basic needs by providing health, education and vocational services, and protecting most vulnerable women, girls and children and preventing from being trafficked and at risk of exploitation.

After collaborating over the years with the GS sisters in their work in human trafficking prevention and child protection, the Good Shepherd International Foundation estabilished a local branch based in Lalitpur in April 2018.The new branch GSIF Nepal will be able to offer a more effective support to the GS programs through capacity building and organizational development activities, to strengthen the GS mission in Nepal.

In addition to continuing to work in cooperation with local mission partners and other leader NGOs operating in the area to implement GS programs, GSIF Nepal will aim to develop and consolidate the network with other non-profit organizations for research activities in Anti-Human trafficking strategies and advocacy for human rights in the Nepalese society.
