MISSION DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
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.
