Generation Hope
<<First Name>>
One of the purest memories a person has is that of childhood. Recollections of playing games with friends, learning the alphabet in school and, most importantly, an ever-present, infectious smile. These innocent times are the foundation for what we grow up to be in adulthood. Even when we start careers and families we remember those times with a fondness. However, not every child has the opportunity to have these experiences.

Across Africa children are being forced to become adults while they are still young. Disease, war and poverty have caused them to redirect their attention to other matters. Instead of worrying about what game to play these children are more concerned about where their next meal will come from or where they will sleep tonight. However, religious Sisters across Africa are using the skills they received through ASEC to sprearhead projects for the youth in Africa, providing hope to the future generation.

Inspire Hope for the Future Generation of Africa

Religioius Sisters graduating from ASEC programs are using technology and grant writing skills to help the youngest members of their communities. However, Across Africa over 80% of Sisters lack the education they need to serve the poor and the vulnerable... especially the youth; our "Generation of Hope." Consider making a donation to the education of a Sister today.
