Implementing Development Projects.
Improving the quality of life for all involved.
Empowering women and young girls
The Good Shepherd Sisters
The work started in 1983 with the main purpose of helping support women and young
girls so that they can work at home or in their community. They can then live with
their families and not have to migrate to Bangkok or big cities to earn money. Regina
Self-Help Center has training courses in tailoring, making bags, weaving, embroidery
and making t-shirts.
The project is divided into fourbranch locations Huai sai, Nongkhai,
Donwai andIsan Weaving Project, part of Nongkhai branch, is located at the Nongkhai
Village Vocational Training Center.,These are for theconvenience of supporting
work distribution and reaching out to the workers. They are all in Nongkhai Province.
Producers depend on sales for the crafts to promote the welfare of their families.
The women involved in the project are trained to take responsibility for management
in all areas related to craft production, decision – making, accountancy , invoicing,
quality control, packing, salaries and supervision. This teaches them to start a
small business on their own when an opportunity occurs.
Sharing Fair is sponsored by the Good Shepherd Sisters to bring disadvantaged women
and girls off the streets and into employment. Countries covered are: Sri Lanka,
Thailand, Kenya, Peru, El Salvador, Philippines, Bolivia, Indonesia and Mexico among
others. All items are the products of these girls’ labour and we rely on your support
and generosity to keep this programme going. All sales go directly into the programme.
The Regina & Fatima Self Help centres are just two examples of our centres across
the Developing World
