Welcome to AOSK website. The title of this website “ ” Reaching to the Most Vulnerable; Consecrated Women Serving Communities through Health, Education, Home Care and Social Services” is derived from one of Mother Teresa’s inspiring quotes, “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love,” reminding all of us that not everyone will change the world in one large swoop, but rather everyone can change the world in small steps through serving the most vulnerable in our communities.

Even though the Catholic Sisters have been for a long time, been contributing significantly to evangelization as well as the realization of Sustainable Development Goals there has been limited coverage on their work and therefore this website attempts to offer, though in a limited way, a coverage of what Catholic sisters are doing in Kenya.

Our Current State

The State of the World’s Children, UNICEFs annual flagship report released in June 2016 reveals that, about 69 million children under five years of age will die from mostly preventable causes, 167 million children will live in poverty, and 750 million women will have been married as children by 2030. This is unless the world focuses more on the plight of its most disadvantaged children, according to a United Nations report published today.

Our Contribution

As a contribution to efforts towards addressing the needs of the most vulnerable children and do so within the more comprehensive framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and in pursuit of the vision 2030 as articulated by the Kenya government, the Association of Sisterhood of Kenya (AOSK) has partnered with the Catholic Relief Services (CRS) through the SCORE-ECD, which stands for Strengthening the Capacity of Women Religious in Early Childhood Development, to help families understand the importance of providing basic care to their children.
