Through their NGO Office, Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur can be registered for UN meetings as NGO participants. There is no fee to attend these meetings, but participants are responsible for their own transportation and room and board. Some funds are available to assist Sisters from Latin America and Africa. If you are a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur interested in attending a UN meeting in 2012, contact Jean Stoner as soon as possible at SNDatUN@sndden.org.
