This week we had the pleasure of hosting Sister Juunza and Sister Eneless. After taking a tour of Santa Clara University grounds, the Sisters were featured guests at the African Diaspora Investment Symposium for their involvement in the Sisters Blended Value Project. Association of Consecrated Women in Eastern and Central Africa and Miller Center have developed the Sisters Blended Value Program to catalyze sustainable and scalable solutions that alleviate poverty across the ACWECA region. The project will help the Sisters launch social enterprises serving local communities, and significantly expand the capacity of the Sisters to positively impact many more lives in the region.
