The Good Shepherd Agricultural Mission was started in 1948 in a remote jungle area of Northern India, on the border of Nepal. The “mission” is now surrounded by many villages and small towns. There are approximately 100 orphan children on the mission, ranging from newborn to young adults.
Though it is partially self-supporting thanks to a 60 acre farm, the GSAM relies primarily on help from caring individuals to keep changing the lives of so many orphan children.
The mission is largely run on a communal basis with many of the staff working as volunteers, without pay but the mission helps to meet their needs by providing food and supplies.
There are also workers who do work for a salary, though it is very minimal. The whole “family” consists of about 220 people.
The mission loves to have volunteer workers to help out, more information can be found the in volunteering sections of our site.

For all the graphic lovers out there, here’s a more complete breakdown of the idea:
“Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another’s pain, life is not in vain.” ~ Helen Keller
