The leadership of the initiative that facilitates education for women Religious in Africa is appealing to people of good will and well-wishers to facilitate the acquisition of 21 laptops to foster the apostolate of Catholic Sisters working “so hard to support their communities” in Africa, an official of the entity has told ACI Africa.
Officials at the helm of the African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC) are making the appeal as part of the GivingTuesday 2020 to be marked December 1, a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
“ASEC’s appeal for GivingTuesday 2020 is for the people of goodwill and well-wishers to donate 21 computers to support the Catholic Sisters in Africa,” ASEC’s Executive Director, Sr. Draru Mary Cecilia told ACI Africa Wednesday, November 25.
The laptops will enable the beneficiaries to transition their studies and ministries to online platforms so that they continue to better serve their people amid COVID-19 pandemic, the member of the Congregation of the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate of Gulu (LSMIG) of Uganda’s Gulu Archdiocese added.
The U.S-based Executive Director of ASEC underscored the need for the laptops saying, “In today’s world, it is virtually impossible to be effective in your work and ministry without using technology at some point.”
