Building the next generation of leaders

Our Service Learning Program enables students from U.S. colleges and universities to travel to one of the African countries we serve. Service Learning trips are held in the summer for 2-3 weeks. ASEC’s Service Learning program promotes global leadership, a key attribute in building the next generation of leaders.

Students who have participated in ASEC’s Service Learning program have:

  • Tutored English as a second language (ESL) to students at Bigwa Sisters Secondary School in Morogoro, Tanzania.
  • Provided service at various orphanages, feeding programs, refugee centers and hospitals.
Total Scholarship Program participants

Since 2008, 70 participants from Chestnut Hill College, Rosemont College and Marywood University have participated in ASEC’s Service Learning program.

Excerpt from “Orphans of God”
- by Emily Schweiger

This orphanage in Tanzania
Is one of my favorite places to be;
Though the conditions are sad,
There is much more to see.

You do not know true joy
Until you have seen a child smile,
Especially one that appears very sad,
And hasn’t been loved in a while.
