RURAL ORPHANS & WIDOWS AIDS NETWORK INC
September 12, 2009
Begun in 2005 as a ministry to rural Uganda, ROWAN seeks to transform and empower AIDS victims to a state of spiritual strength and economic independence. Current 30+ adults attend the Adult Literacy Program, the Mawanga Medical Clinic impacts a rural population of approx. 8,000 with ROWAN's assistance and support, Micro-enterprise allows its sponsors to meet weekly to decide organization and maintenance of pineapple farming and other agrarian projects,the Higher Education Program is sponsoring its first orphan at law school at Kampala Univ, Vocational Training in something that ROWAN would like to expand, Bibles and Studies complement the Adult Literacy Program. These are life changing programs, done in the name of Jesus and a small amount of U.S. dollars does so very much! ROWAN overhead is all volunteer.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the faces and stories of the people who have gone to the village firsthand. Children who were naked or in rags are now clothed and going to school..fees paid for. Widows who have never held a pen can now write their name and can read their bibles!
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & I am a founder and volunteer treasurer for ROWAN.
