African Sisters Education Collaborative

31 May 2017

The African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC) was established in 1999 by four Catholic universities in the U.S. and their congregations to support the education of African women religious

Society of the Holy Child Jesus (Rosemont College)
Sisters of Saint Joseph of Philadelphia (Chestnut Hill College)
Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary of Scranton (Marywood University)
Sisters of Saint Francis of Philadelphia (Neumann University)

Since its founding, ASEC has gone rapidly from strength to strength under the leadership of a particularly gifted and inspired Kenyan sister, Jane Wakahiu, LSOSF. As one of the donors said when viewing the video for the first time, “Very quietly you’re impacting so many lives through this program. And you’re giving these wonderful, faithful women a chance to succeed, and in their own little corner of the world…feel empowered.”
