THE GOOD SHEPHERD AGRICULTURAL MISSION

OUR INDIAN ORPHANAGE

In the heart of every child is a hunger for home. Not just for food and a place to sleep, but for safety and community. Most importantly: for love. At the Good Shepherd Agricultural Mission, 350kms east of Delhi in the town of Banbasa, we are much more than a home for unwanted Indian orphans.

We are a family, where God’s love guides us all as we grow and expand year after year. Not just an Indian orphanage, we are a nearly self-sustaining organization; a working farm, a vibrant school, receiving no government assistance of any kind. Take a look around and if you have any questions just get in contact with us via the menu above!

INTRODUCTION VIDEO

For more than 70 years, with the help of caring individuals worldwide and a lot of hard work, we wake up each day with the same goal: to bring as much love to as many unwanted children as possible. It’s not always easy, it comes with a long list of challenges to overcome… but we are doing it! Lives are being changed and stories rewritten. We are excited to have you along for the ride. Take a look at our introduction video, it was put together by long time friend of our organization, John Marshall.

Hear From Our Volunteers

No place affected me more than the GSAM. During my time, I found the children to be beyond adorable, quick to smile and easily pleased. I have no doubt they gave more love to me and my family than we could ever hope to give to them.

John Marshall, USA

Wonderful. Way too short because our visit was not planned; the most memorable part of our first visit to India. Rick ‘warned’ us that the kids would get under our skin, and that’s exactly what happened!

Rosey Barta, Australia

The days spent at the mission will always stay with me for the rest of my life. It’s not the work that we did that really caused the impact, it was the time we spent there, interacting with the kids, the opportunity to bring laughter, joy and smiles.
