I get to know about Rowan at the year of 2010 when Kelsey was in Singapore speaking to a group of students and i'm one of the them! I graduated at year of 2011, April, and decided to go for a graduation trip, so this is how my volunteering journey with Rowan begin. I graduate as nurse and thus i'm finding way if i can contribute in anyway, after being in touch with Rowan, i realize that i can put it to good use in the village clinic. After much planning and arrangement, I flew to Uganda and into Mawanga village for 3 months and eventually came up with a needs assessment proposal for the clinic. Rowan is supporting the villagers by empowering them with life skills to eventually becoming independent with living, having them becoming a member of Rowan for those who are orphan and women who are infected with Aids. Supporting them financially for medical health care is just one of the aspect and is also the area that i'm focusing in due to my faculty. Rowan started out with tears but ever since it show how great a positive impact it has in the village, joy is what they have now, yes it tough but it can be even tougher if it's without the presence of Rowan. I always find it amazing how a nonprofit like Rowan that situate in a village like this can gain recognition world-wide, even in Singapore! Thank you Rowan for even impacting my life for good!
