STORIA

The Good Shepherd International Foundation is a nonprofit value-based organization located in Rome (Italy) and founded by Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd (Good Shepherd sisters ), an international Congregation of women religious present in 73 countries, to support the mission in the least developed countries of the world. Originally established in 2007 as a Mission Development Office by the Good Shepherd sisters, it became incorporated as a Foundation in 2008.

La Congregazione di Nostra Signora della Carità del Buon Pastore conta ad oggi circa 4.000 membri organizzati in oltre 600 comunità nel mondo. Dal 1996 è riconosciuta dalle Nazioni Unite come ONG in statuto consultivo con l’ECOSOC per il suo importante lavoro a favore di ragazze, donne e bambini, in particolare coloro che vivono in povertà e sono vittime di violenze, abusi e discriminazioni.

Good Shepherd International Foundation lavora per implementare un approccio basato sullo sviluppo e sui diritti umani per sostenere i programmi Good Shepherd nei paesi a basso -medio reddito e per rimuovere le cause che generano povertà e ingiustizia, promuovendo uno sviluppo inclusivo e sostenibile per i più emarginati e vulnerabili.
