||The Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd became affiliated with the United Nations as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in consultative status with ECOSOC in November 1996.
The purpose of this affiliation is to further the mission of reconciliation, particularly in its orientation toward girls and women. Through this means of collaboration the NGO works to bring about change in whatever conditions condemn others to a marginalized life. Through its affiliation with the goals of the UN, the organization seeks to extend mercy to the poor and to the oppressed, awakening the world to the dignity and value of each person.
