Good Shepherd Centre offers shelter to teenagers, women, mothers and their children, where they can rebuild their lives after violence, abuse and victimization. The sisters of the Good Shepherd have opened their doors in 1935 in Singapore for girls who are troubled, abused or need of assistance in life, help and offer a place of peace for woman who are in need of care. And although the charity has a Christian foundation, the doors of the sister’s shelter is open for everyone with any religion or cultural background.
Apart from shelter the Good Shepherd Center also teaches those living there various handicrafts to help them become independent and get them back on their feet. Once they leave the shelter they are able to make a living for themselves and their children and leave their old lives behind.
