AACSS WorkshopsEducational workshops in six Sub-Saharan countries
Educational Workshops and Counseling Training Programs
Educational workshops in six sub-Saharan countries Uganda, Malawi, Nigeria, Cameroon, Zambia and Zimbabwe have trained 3,000 sisters. AACSS sponsored Counseling Training Programs have educated 150 sisters. Faith formation conferences (engaging 50 sisters to date) enable the sisters to bring information, counseling, education and faith formation to the people, and break the cycle of silence and stigma surrounding HIVAIDS. These programs offer a sense of hope to struggling communities.
Creating Lasting Change
AACSS-USA together with members of AACSS in subSaharan Africa are striving to reduce HIV-AIDS related deaths and new infections. Such an ambitious goal requires a commitment to educate and prepare the next generation of women and men from throughout the region in order to make a long lasting impact on this pandemic.
