Review for RURAL ORPHANS & WIDOWS AIDS NETWORK INC, Acton, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My life collided with ROWAN in January 2013 when I had begun searching for the right organization in Uganda to get behind. I fell in love with the business model and leadership that I saw in ROWAN. They are organized, determined, smart and practical. Their leadership comes from the inside, the very source, Mawanga, and then extends out into others here on the ground in the USA. I had the privilege of visiting Mawanga this July, and I was absolutely blown away. Their programs are built around sound, strategic models for how to make this village and these beautiful people, build lives that are self-sustaining rather than reliant on outsiders. It's so easy to rally others behind this cause, and the efforts of ROWAN, because the people that are leading the organization are honest and genuine. And the people who are benefitting from ROWAN are living stories of the blessing that has come from the time and energy spent building and carrying out ROWAN's vision.
