AACSS Workshops

Educational 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.
