- I was sent to Good Shepherd Centre after experiencing bad things in Singapore. I did not know what my life was going to be. I was scared and worried about my future. The Staff were very patient with me and taught me many good things. I discovered my talents in baking and I felt so much joy when doing it. I also learned dancing, singing and even had opportunities to go on outings that were sponsored by the volunteers!

- Working in Good Shepherd Centre has made me grow in Faith. Every day I see the grace of God working, transforming hurts, pains and abuse to healing, strength, smiles and energy for a better future. I appreciate the blessings of life more and they are the ones who show me how to count my blessings and share my blessings with others.

- What I find most enjoyable about the English class I teach is that it’s different every week. The class is made up of various nationalities and we each get to learn a bit more about each other’s cultures and countries. It’s great to see how new students develop confidence over the weeks and months. Even though it’s sometimes challenging as a teacher, I always feel much happier after each class and feel that I have tried to contribute something to others.
Even after all these years, it’s still a highlight of my week! I appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the great work that GSC does to improve the lives of women in their care.
