College-bound Sisters - Higher Education for Sisters in Africa

African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC)
Posted on Tue, Nov 3, 2015

In partnership with the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and the University of Southern California Center for Religion and Civic Culture, we are delighted to share new videos showcasing our work, mission and impact. We are grateful to everyone involved in this project and we look forward to hearing your feedback.

Catholic sisters provide crucial services in Africa on issues from education and health care to women's rights and the environment. African women religious often try to meet the needs of the community without formal training. Higher Education for Sisters in Africa (HESA) allows sisters to pursue degrees that allow them to become administrators at schools, nurses and health workers and other professionals that serve their communities. Through HESA, the African Sisters Education Collaborative helps Catholic sisters undertake essential ministries with the proper credentials, knowledge and skills.
