Taking to the streets - upholding women
On November 30th, Good Shepherd Nong Khai added its voice to the international movement to end violence against women and girls. Organised by the GS Child and Youth Development Programme, 4,000 participants from government and non-government departments, organisations, schools and hospitals took part in a street walk which culminated in the city centre. They were addressed by Nong Khai's Governor and Sr Sutisa, who spoke about our commitment to protect the dignity of women and together, eradicate all forms of violence.
Garden of Friendship - 10 years of community, healing and LIFE
We give thanks to all who have supported the Garden of Friendship since it opened on December 6th 2008.
From a three bed care facility, it has grown to offer 35 places for those requiring medical and social assistance, as well as offering long term accommodation to an additional 24. It is a thriving community which welcomes, encourages and enables people facing incredible challenges, to embrace life one again.
At the heart of the projects, is a commitment to foster the dignity of the individual and a sense of belonging to communities where people experience respect, acceptance, love and hope. Through the 5 major project areas, the Good Shepherd Sisters and their compassionate and committed mission partners, have a presence in 185 villages, across 4 provinces.
