ASEC Anthology "Voices of Courage" book launch

Posted on

A book launch for Voices of Courage was held at CUEA, Nairobi, Kenya.

With a grant from the GHR Foundation, ASEC sponsored Voices of Courage: Historical, Sociocultural, and Educational Journeys of Women Religious in East and Central Africa. The anthology, which brings together scholars from the U.S. and African countries, is a collection of case studies, research, and scholarly reflections on the role of Catholic sisters in Africa, in their communities, and in a larger societal context.

Voices of Courage: Historical, Socio-cultural, and Educational Journeys of Women Religious in East and Central Africa“Drawing on empirical studies of women religious, the book documents the commitment of sisters to the education, healthcare, and spiritual enrichment of people, especially those who are impoverished,” commented Donald E. Miller, Executive Director, Center for Religious and Civic Culture, University of Southern California. A book launch was held October 1, 2015, at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA). The ceremony was attended by the collection’s chief editors, Sr. Jane Wakahiu, LSOSF, Ph.D., Peter I. Gichure, Ph.D., and Ann Rita K. Njageh, Ph.D., as well as women religious, SLDI and HESA students, CUEA students, and religious from around the region.
