I saw first-hand the lives that this amazing program is changing
"ASEC is a beautiful organization that gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. Through multiple programs, the good that ASEC does is immeasurable. With each individual person this program helps, whether through getting sisters the education they deserve or sending students across the world to serve, a ripple effect is started, impacting more lives than expected. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to go to Tanzania through ASEC, and to see first-hand the lives that this amazing program is changing. I can't wait to see the ways in which the program will grow in the future, and to go on to do my own work, inspired by ASEC."

Tasks are performed within allotted time to improve efficiency like teaching, Boarding Mistress duties and being a Master’s student.
