OUR MISSION

OUR MODEL OF INTERVENTION

To achieve our mission in partnership with Good Shepherd network, the Good Shepherd International Foundation adopts the Mission Development Process, an organizational development model centered on participatory planning and long-term capacity building of local partners.

Throughout our work, we share the approach of the Good Shepherd sisters who consider the direct relationships with people the key to helping bring about positive and lasting change in their lives. We employ a bottom-up planning strategy in which the local partners use their nearby position to assess the needs of the community and translate them into effective development projects.

WHAT WE DO

We promote inclusive and sustainable development for the most marginalized and vulnerable members of society and offers assistance to projects of the Good Shepherd sisters and their partners.

Good Shepherd partners and programs at all levels, from the smallest communities to the representatives at the UN Council, are committed to achieve the following strategic objectives with a special focus on women, girls and children and adopting an integrated approach “to combating poverty and restore the dignity” to the most vulnerable and marginalized:

icon01

Reduce poverty and hunger and create decent work for all

icon02

Eliminate all forms of violence and discrimination against girls, women and children, such as trafficking, sexual exploitation and forced labor and advocating at all levels to realize gender equality

icon03

Protect the rights of migrants and refugees, particularly of women migrants, to build inclusive societies
