Buen Pastor is a convent run by seven sisters in the heartland of Mexico. They are dedicated to saving women and their children from lives of violence. They do this by providing a safe place to live and a comprehensive education to all who pass through their doors.
Buen Pastor runs an "internado" for girls, kind of like a weekly foster-home. Some of the girls stay permanently. Sometimes, the girls come from dire poverty and their parents can't afford to keep them. Other times, families are going through crisis and need a place to hold their children for awhile. Still others come from violence and are placed in the internado by the State. The Madres provide a nourishing environment for the girls. You can feel the love in the home and warmth radiating from the girls when you come to Buen Pastor.
