Good Shepherd leader in time of crisis

Taskila has worked with marginalized groups in India, promoting and advocating for their human rights.

For ten years she worked as a social worker: 

  • Working for the rights of the landless tribes.

  • Promoting the right to education of the tribal children.

  • Organizing Children’s Parliament.

  • Educating and empowering women to participate in the local self-government in the villages.

She was a member of the Asia Pacific Justice Peace core team since early 2013.

In recent years Taskila lived and worked at Opportunity Village in Nepal.  In April 2015 when the disastrous earthquake hit Nepal, Taskila played a leadership role in coordinating the Good Shepherd response.

When the Good Shepherd International Foundation (GSIF) established a local branch based in Kathmandu in April 2018, Taskila took up a role with this office. GSIF Nepal is able to offer more effective support to the Good Shepherd programs through capacity building and organizational development activities, to strengthen the Good Shepherd mission in Nepal.
