About the Daughters of Charity
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.
