My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Rural Orphans & Widows Aids Network Inc, Acton, CA, USA
We have recently helped ROWAN though our own charity organisation called Solibad through a common partnership, and I must admit that I was simply amazed by the way Rowan was run both from the USA by Kelsey and Pastor Paul and his staff on site, in Mawenga. They know where they are heading and they are going with a great smile in spite of all the difficulties. Their hearts is a big as their goal even if they have little means to achieve it. They try hard and it makes all the difference.
Most charity organisations tend to help local people financially. At Rowan, they go far beyond that, as they help them spiritually, with joy, and also, they help them help themselves. As an old African saying goes, it is better to teach the fishermen how to catch a fish than to give him a fish. This is what Rowan does.
It's been a real delight to discover this amazing network of people, who are really doing a fantastic job on the field.
