The purpose of the African Sisters Education Collaborative is to create a partnership that will result in making higher education available to women religious in Africa using both local and distance learning. In September, 2004, sister-leaders from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda were invited to attend a conference at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia and Marywood University in Scranton, PA.

The goals of this conference included:

  • Introduce the African sisters to instructional technologies and demonstrate the potential of technology as a tool in the learning environment.
  • Refine data pointing to the needs of the African sisters and opportunities for education and to identify priorities.
  • Prepare an action plan for implementing the project.
