For the past six years the Sisters of the Good Shepherd have explored innovative ways to build a stronger network of Good Shepherd agencies and programs across North America. Their ultimate desire is to ensure that the special commitment and values behind Good Shepherd mission endures as a lasting legacy. They partner, where they can, to strengthen the resolve of the lay professionals to manage and lead the agencies established by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd.
HandCrafting Justice is a fellow nonprofit sponsored by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd. The organization operates internationally to promote economic justice through marketing Fair Trade crafts made by women in the developing world. HandCrafting Justice works exclusively with international sites sponsored by the Good Shepherd International Foundation in over 20 countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America, but our mission is much the same as any Good Shepherd sponsored agency—to advocate for the dignity and right to succeed for struggling communities.
