The International Union of Superiors General is a membership organisation for the leaders of Catholic women’s congregations, representing over 600,000 Catholic Sisters worldwide.

Numbering over 1,900 Superiors General (or congregational leaders), with Generalates (or headquarters) in 97 countries, the UISG network is estimated to be one of the largest providers of direct community support in areas including health, hunger relief, and care for children.

Alongside its core mission of training, supporting and connecting members, UISG acts as an umbrella organisation for Sisters engaged in tackling some of the world’s most pressing development challenges.

Our work would not be possible without support from the Global Solidarity Fund, a unique alliance catalysing partnerships across the development sector, the private sector and Catholic communities.
