Support the Missions

The School Sisters of Notre Dame have lived and ministered in seven countries on the African continent.  Today, in 2024, we are 89 Sisters (78 African, 11 Non-African) living in 23 communities in six different countries (1 Sister volunteers in South Sudan).   The Province of Africa has 7 novices at the novitiate in Rome and 12 postulants in Kisumu, Kenya.  There are 30 young women in different stages of affiliation.  In 2011 Sisters serving in Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Sierra Leone, and The Gambia came together to form the SSND Province of Africa

Sisters serve in parishes schools and clinics

  1.  Seven secondary schools for girls were begun and continue to be run and supported in rural areas where girls had little to no opportunity for education to this level.
  2.  Notre Dame Clinic was begun in Ghana to treat all who come but especially caters to poor women and their children. Today the clinic has a large maternity unit.
  3.  Sisters teach in various schools from the pre-school level through the tertiary level.
  4.  Some Sisters work in an HIV/AIDS project in Kenya, especially with the orphans.
  5.  Several Sisters work as chaplains and train others to be ministers to the sick.
  6.  Sisters also are involved in parish ministry, social ministry to women prisoners, and youth ministry.
  7.  Several Sisters serve in administrative offices in dioceses and religious organizations.

These Sisters touch the lives of thousands of men, women, and children each day through the schools, clinics/hospitals, and parishes where they serve.  Lives truly are transformed!

We cannot do it alone.  We need your prayers and generous support for the upkeep of the Sisters as well as for their ministries, Particularly in this time when the global economy has been so affected by the aftermath of Covid 19. The Province is in the process of building two new schools: one in Abuga Archdiocese in Nigeria and one in Nyalieng’a Kenya.  Construction costs are very high. We welcome your support in sharing God’s Mission. To learn more about the Sisters of Notre Dame- Province of Africa, visit our YouTube channel at or visit our website at
