We Work to Enable People Living in Poverty

Each of Us Commits Her One and Only Life to Work with Others to Create Justice and Peace for All.

Today, Sisters of Notre Dame work with refugees in London, street children in Nairobi, immigrant farm workers in Florida, AIDS orphans in Zimbabwe, the homeless in Haiti… and always, with women and children, who are among the most vulnerable.
