About ASEC

The African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC) was established in 1999 by four Catholic universities in the U.S. and their congregations:

  • the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Philadelphia (Chestnut Hill College)
  • the Sisters of IHM of Scranton (Marywood University)
  • the Sisters of Saint Francis of Philadelphia (Neumann University)
  • the Society of the Holy Child Jesus (Rosemont College)

That same year, ASEC set up computer labs and began providing technology workshops to African Sisters in five pilot countries: Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. We received 501(c)(3) nonprofit approval in 2006.

ASEC now serves 10 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa with over 50 partnerships in the USA and Africa combined.

100% of your gift (minus credit card transaction fees) goes directly to educating a Sister because a private donor covers all our operational costs and employee salaries.
