Our objective

Good Shepherd New Zealand's objective is to support better futures for women and girls experiencing disadvantage.

Through our work we continue the mission of the Good Shepherd Sisters and envision a world that is just, equal and upholds human rights for all.

Our network's vision to create an emotionally, economically and physically safe world for women and girls. Our network's purpose is to disrupt the intergenerational cycle of disadvantage and enable fullness of life, especially for women and girls.

Our network's values of reconciliation, zeal, justice, audacity and the value of each person guide us in the work we do. 



Good Shepherd's global mission is ingrained in everything we do. In keeping with our heritage and core values—begun by the Good Shepherd Sisters nearly 200 years ago—we remain committed to the pursuit of a better world for women and girls.
