I have watched ROWAN grow from a dream and passion to a fully operational and professional international non-profit. They combine a rare combination of indigenous led on the ground programing with US based support and accountability. The program is driven and owned by local leaders with "skin in the game". ROWAN reflects the best of a local culturally appropriate approach that is designed for social and economic sustainability.
