Watch the video below to learn more about how ASEC's Scholarship Program bridges the gap to higher education for Sisters in Africa.
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.
