I have watched ROWAN grow from a dream and passion to a fully operational and professional international non-profit. They combine... indigenous-led on the ground programming with US based support and accountability. The program is driven... by local leaders with "skin in the game". ROWAN reflects the best of a local culturally appropriate approach that is designed for social and economic sustainability."

-Sam Voorhies, advisor

I had the opportunity to volunteer with ROWAN in Uganda. It was honestly the most eye opening and uplifting trip that I have been on. Hearing local villagers share about how ROWAN has positively impacted them, their families,and surrounding villages was inspiring. The work of ROWAN in the US and in Uganda, is truly changing lives and the power of God can be greatly seen at work."
