The institutions listed below belong to the province. In parallel, the sisters have expanded their ministries to various other areas. They take care of prison care, a center for newborns and employment programs for women. They also run social awareness programs that can improve the living standards of poor villagers.

During the last three decades of their work for the social advancement of the poor, they have put in great effort to qualify the members of the institutions with which they work in the various services. They did this with their limited financial and human resources. Today they have trained personnel in the services mentioned. However, many of them are slowly getting old and sick.
