RURAL ORPHANS & WIDOWS AIDS NETWORK INC

I met Kelsey Hargadine, co-founder of ROWAN, 5 years ago when the organization was just starting out. This past July I was fortunate enough to get to travel with ROWAN to the frontlines - Mawanga, Uganda. It is hard to put the experience into words, but it was an extraordinary trip. ROWAN's leaders were professional in their trip planning and execution of the complex itinerary. I felt safe, cared for, and all the details were taken care of.

Now to speak to their work in rural eastern Uganda - what comes to mind is the strong leadership. Kelsey, along with the local leaders, are great decision makers with hearts of gold. They are visionaries with big dreams - God dreams - and are fully committed to seeing them come alive for this otherwise forgotten community. I was deeply moved by the complete dedication the team has to raising up HOPE in the hopeless. This is a ROWAN specialty.

ROWAN is a part of the very fabric of Mawanga so the leaders know the needs intimately. The impact that their presence and love has had on the community will only be known in Heaven one day.

ROWAN strengths to me include pouring unconditional love on to the women and children, along with empowering them through the teaching of new skill sets and education.

Simply priceless.

JOIN our ROWAN family today and be a witness to God's work in our world!!!

It has been a great privilege to meet and get to know ROWAN's cofounder, Kelsey Young. She is a true visionary and leader who has the biggest heart for the ROWAN community. I believe in her mission and this young non-profit is only going to continue to grow bigger and stronger each year. ROWAN is making a huge, positive impact in Uganda and I am deeply grateful to have the opportunity to play my own very small role. I recommend ROWAN 100%!!!
