African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC)

Congratulations to the 2013 Bigwa Secondary School scholarship recipients.

In an effort to increase access to education for Tanzanian sisters, ASEC introduced a partial scholarship fund for sisters to study "A" level (form 5 and 6) at the Bigwa Secondary School in Morogoro,Tanzania. The scholarships cover costs for tuition/board and room. Most of the sisters within the age range of 25-50 are eager to acquire an education.
