Women with a heart for the world
Our priority as RNDM is to be present to and work with those who are vulnerable and neglected, those marginalised in our world today, with particular regard to women, children, youth, indigenous peoples, migrants and victims of human trafficking (See 27th Congregation Chapter, 2014, p.12)
The featured projects have been funded by the Australian Partners in Mission and Donors. We guarantee that 100% of donations received go to the nominated Mission project. We are also a registered charity and will provide a tax deductible receipt.
Our Missions Across the Globe
The vision of Tei Wa Ngai is that people with disabilities are accepted in the society and are living fully independent and happy lives according to their potential. To encourage and empower parents and society to accept children with disabilities to access health care and education, to provide protection and financial sustainability.
Throughout India the RNDM Sisters are involved in a variety of ministries including administration and teaching in schools at all levels, from Kindergarten to University College and both formal and informal, social work, health care, pastoral work and empowerment of women.
Vietnam today is our largest Province. There is a high proportion of young Sisters who are now the missionaries going out to meet the needs of people across the world. Currently Vietnamese Sisters are contributing to the RNDM mission in Laos, France, Peru, Philippines, South Sudan, Kenya, Senegal, UK & Ireland and Italy.
The Philippine Region was established in 1987 on the island of Mindanao and our first mission was among the Dulangan Menubo tribal people at Kulaman. The Sisters established a hostel for girls from remote villages to enable them to have access to education and a health centre providing primary health care.
Sittwe was the first RNDM mission in Myanmar, established in 1897, and was visited by our Foundress Euphrasie Barbier. Myanmar has had a chequered history; war and years of invasion, political and social upheaval. In 1966 when all expatriates had to leave there were 13 Burmese RNDM’s. Today there are 70 professed Sisters working in a number of Diocese.
