The Good Shepherd International Foundation (formerly known as the Mission Development Office) was created in 2007 by the Congregational Leadership Team in Rome to:
Develop and expand a global network of donors and partners willing to support Good Shepherd Sisters’ ministries in the developing countries;
Prepare project proposals in collaboration with the Good Shepherd Sisters' units in Africa, Asia and Latin America to match them with prospective international donors and submit applications for funding;
Link with the donors to manage the grants and support the sisters in reporting to improve the projects’ accountability;
Train sisters and lay partners in grant-seeking and project management;
Raise awareness of Good Shepherd Sisters’ initiatives in poverty eradication, human trafficking, peace building at global level.
Since 2008 the Mission Development Office has been registered in Italy as the Good Shepherd International Foundation ONLUS. The Foundation is managed by a Board of Directors, appointed by the Congregational Leadership Team. The Board is chaired by the President.
