Higher Education for Sisters in Africa
Sisters Leadership Development Initiative
"Very quietly you're impacting so many lives through this program."
"...and you're giving these wonderful, faithful women a chance to succeed, and in their own little corner of the world... feel empowered."
-Lisa Mazzarella, HESA Instructor & ASEC Donor
The African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC) provides access to education for Catholic Sisters in Africa. With a quality education, these women religious become qualified to serve as teachers, as well as in healthcare, spiritual, and social service ministries in their countries.
As the sisters themselves are educated, they, in turn, educate more African people. Because of this ripple effect, we believe that education will help African nations become more self-sufficient. Much of our work explores how the use of technology can help African Sisters better serve their communities.
