Good Shepherd is a congregation founded in France in 1835 with the primary purpose of assisting disadvantage women, teenagers and children at risk.
The first house of the Good Shepherd Sisters, Thailand, was established in 1965 in Din Daeng, Bangkok. Since that time the number being helped has increased drastically. The area of Bangkok in which the Sisters first began working is unrecognizable. From the open paddy fields and slum dwellings, it is now a crowded busy metropolis. The slums have increased in number and the needs of the people facing unemployment, sickness, lack of educational opportunities and poverty have escalated.
Responding to this need, the Good Shepherd Sisters in Din Daeng have very successfully implemented the various programs . We now operate houses in 5 other locations in Thailand.
