About the Daughters of
The Daughters of Charity were established through the collaboration
of Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac in 1633. Over 20,000
Daughters work to serve the poor and marginalized in 91 countries
around the world, and approximately 75% of those countries are
severely poverty stricken. The Daughters of Charity International
Project Services (DCIPS) is a nonprofit service organization,
established in 2004 to support the Sisters who minister in these
areas of the world. DCIPS works to acquire the financial resources
necessary to initiate projects in impoverished communities-
addressing basic human needs such as food, shelter and water,
economic needs, training, and education. Since September
2004, DCIPS has facilitated 299 projects in 50 countries.
The Daughters of Charity act as GLOBE field partners and
recommend loan candidates, distribute funds, and help to collect
loan repayments from the entrepreneurs in their communities.
