Lusaka, Zambia — The Association of Consecrated Women in Eastern and Central Africa (ACWECA) launched a new website August 19: http://www.acwecainternational.org/.

The launch of the website brought excitement to the sisters and lay faithful who were present during the launch, which included donors and partners.

In her presentation during the launch, the ACWECA Communications Officer Marie Njuguna said the ACWECA website is one of the integral channels used to communicate to the outside world.

“Our communication mostly entails our projects, ACWECA news, an ACWECA diary of events, fundraising and any other activities,” she said.

She said, “Communication is very important for any organization; it is a way of telling the outside world what we are doing, what we want and what we need, also to listen or get information of what others are doing and ways to collaborate.”

“The new website has been designed with simplicity, accessibility and improved navigation. Our newest initiative is ACWECA Friends Association. Other features are the social media, for both Twitter and Facebook streaming in real time on the homepage.”

Njuguna appealed to all national conferences to make use of the website by posting information regularly. The new website links all ACWECA member countries to the homepage.

There was clapping soon after the launch, and the ACWECA chairperson commended the team behind the new website and all members in the ACWECA secretariat for their dedication.

The launch was held at Andrew’s Motel, in Lusaka, Zambia, during the ongoing general assembly from August 16 to 29.
