How To Get Involved
Visit smile.amazon.com and choose African Sisters Education Collaborative as your charity of choice. 0.5% of every purchase you make will be donated to ASEC!
Give the gift of a good education.
Because of you, our alumnae have used what they've learned to raise $13.7M to support their own projects in Africa.
We've learned that education has exponential positive effects in building sisters' self-confidence, increasing productivity, and in improving their service delivery and sustainability of their ministries and church. With the gift of education, they can overcome the cycle of poverty that characterizes their lives and the lives of those they serve.
Where your contributions go
100% of your contribution is used to sponsor the education of African Sisters in our programs.*
- $500 supports a U.S. college student for a 2-week service learning trip.
- $1,000 provides an annual scholarship for the two-year Scholarship program
- $5,000 allows a sister to attend the three-year SLDI program.
- $7,300 enables a sister to complete a year of higher education towards a Bachelor's degree in the HESA program.
*We depend on grants and partnerships to cover all of our operating costs. Because of these incredibly gracious and dedicated donors we are able to scale as an organization and use all public donations directly toward our mission, our cause: to educate women religious in Africa.
