The Society of the Sacred Heart is an official Religious Congregation within the Catholic Church. The Religious of the Sacred Heart (RSCJ), Uganda/Kenya Province is part of an international community founded by St. Madeleine Sophie Barat in 1800. Today there are 2200 Religious of the Sacred Heart serving in 41 countries including five countries of Africa: Uganda, Kenya, Tchad, Democratic Republic of Congo and Egypt. In Uganda and Kenya, we are involved in teaching from Primary level to University level, in counselling, pastoral work, development of village women, work in prisons, health care, AIDS education, home-based care of those with AIDS and a home for children with disabilities.
