Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur

St. Julie Billiart founded the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in France in 1804. With her friend Françoise Blin de Bourdon, St. Julie pledged her life to make known God’s goodness, especially among the poorest and most abandoned people. Together they established schools for girls who were not being educated  in the aftermath of the French Revolution.

Many structures of society contribute to keeping people living in poverty. The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur work in eighteen countries around the world to change oppressive structures and help people obtain what every human being has a right to: food, clothing, shelter, medical care, and education. We believe that education in varied forms is the best way to change structures and improve individuals’ lives.

    • Dear Sir,

      If you wish to attend UN meetings, you must take care of your own transportation to New York and all expenses while you are here since we can provide funding only for Sisters of Notre Dame. We would need references for you to be part of our UN delegation since our UN office does not already know you. Are you connected to any Sisters of Notre Dame in Kenya?

      Thank you for your interest in the United Nations.
