About Us

I (Dr.Babu Narendran) and my wife Dr.Sally are medical doctors. We were working in a city in Kerala when we got an opportunity to visit some tribal villages in Nigiris of Tamil Nadu, India. To our surprise the living conditions of those tribal people living in the jungle hamlets without any medical facilities, schooling running water or electricity was really pathetic. It was a time of turning point in our life. We decided to do something for their upliftment.

Hence in 1987 we moved to the village of Masinagudi and started living there and opened up the village clinic. That was the beginning of this work of charity. Gradually, we opened up an orphanage, then village feeding centers feeding the kids with one meal a day, and then came the existence of the Good Shepherd Matriculation school.

Within the limited facility of the three roomed clinic we have to handle all kinds of ailments including hart cases and also to deliver babies. An average number of 40 patients attend the OP every day


In the school which began in 2001 with just 20 kids, right now we have 300 plus children between 4 and 15 years of age. Three batches have already appeared and came out in flying colours in the Secondary School Leaving Certificate examination. 20 plus teaching staff and 10 plus non- teaching staff work throughout the day in educating these village kids.

More than 55 children found their bright future as they could find asylum in Good Shepherd Orphanage in the past 20 years. Still we have many orphan children staying with us as home stay.

Your co-operation and donations are expected in the days to come

Dr.Babu & Dr.Sally Narendran
