86 Religious Sisters gathered at St. Francis Spiritual Center Kasarani from 26th to 29th January to participate in the annual event of ASEC Alumnae Association workshop. For the first time HESA sisters who graduated in 2014, 2015 and 2016 joined Alumnae Association which was previously comprised of SLDI Alumnae only. It was a thrilling moment for ASEC in Kenya to witness the growth of the family not just in numbers but also in wealth of transformative leaders!

Upon graduation from the program, sisters receive a laptop to assist them in continuing their work at home. Alumnae are expected to mentor at least 3 other sisters and are encouraged to invite their mentees to attend the annual alumnae workshops. Equipped with a strong foundation of skills, about 1/3 of our SLDI alumnae go on to pursue a college diploma or Bachelor’s degree through our HESA program.

Alumnae Workshops

SLDI Alumnae and their mentees engage in continuing education and networking through SLDI’s annual alumnae workshops. In these three-day workshops, sisters can:

  • learn more about a specific topic or skill area
  • share successes and challenges they experience in their work
  • discuss emerging issues
  • broaden their skills
  • network with other alumnae and their mentees.
