The Association of Sisterhoods of Kenya is an umbrella body of over 158 registered member congregations in Kenya. It has been in existence for over half a century now and has tirelessly coordinated the activities of the association while supporting the catholic sisters’ formation and ministry. The sisters engage on day-to-day basis with human development aspects aimed at improving the lives of the disadvantaged and the vulnerable in areas where the government has not been able to reach. Key among which ensuring healthy lives and promoting the well-being for all at all ages has been the catholic sisters’ main ministry.
Association of Sisterhoods of Kenya Catholic Care for Children in Kenya was born in May, 2018 when catholic sisters realized that their human development works does bring change and can have far reaching impact if aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) known as the Global Goals, a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. This implies that the development partners are focused on putting societies on a sustainable development pathway, managing risk and enhancing resilience, and advancing prosperity and wellbeing by 2030. This is in line with what the Sisters do albeit with a religious approach.
AOSK-CCCK is conscious of ensuring healthy living, promoting and strengthening the well-being of families and vulnerable children is essential to sustainable human development. In Kenya, the state of care institutions is overcome by many challenges especially those expressed by the individuals brought up in them. Therefore we consolidate efforts to create synergy to scale up family and care services for children in Kenya by strategically creating a structure to offer quality, affordable and sustainable programs as indicated in the Association strategic plan 2018-2022.
