In January of 2014 Sister Marcia Sichol, SHCJ, Executive Director of the Conrad N. Hilton Fund for Sisters, and Sister Jane Wakahiu, LSOSF, ASEC, Executive Director made a site visit to Kenya. The purpose of this visit was threefold:
- to facilitate two-week training for the ASEC Staff in Africa
- to explore the possibility of working with the Fund for Sisters to design a program whereby both ASEC and the Fund for Sisters could collaborate more closely with the Catholic Sisters Initiative (CSI); and,

In 2014, a total of 758 sisters from Cameroon, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, South Sudan, Zambia, Malawi and Lesotho will be participating in SLDI program and 112 will be enrolled in the HESA program.
