Good Shepherd Convent:

The Good Shepherd Convent is situated 10km north of Colombo at Nyakakanda which is about 1km from the sea. They have a day school for local children, a large live in section for older orphaned children and a 40 cot nursery for abandoned or relinquished children or infants in need of short term emergency care.


 It also has facilities for mothers-to-be who have nowhere else to go. The sisters teach them new skills and give them hope and confidence for the future. They have a vegetable garden and a bakery with the products being used for their kitchen. Sponsorship money goes into a fund to help all of the children so that no child is deprived of their needs.
