ROWAN: A Year in Review

Saturday, December 31st, 2016 by Liz Kliewer

We are so thankful to God for blessing this ministry and providing for our needs. We could not have done all that we accomplished in the last year without our loyal sponsors, prayer partners and fellow non-profit organizations with which we network.

Highlights of 2016

This past year has gone by so quickly and was very eventful for ROWAN. We now have 150 sponsored orphans/widows, our people survived a famine, we have seen growth in savings and local businesses, participated in several fund-raising campaigns, learned how to make bricks and build houses, seen an election, watched one of our orphans graduate with a degree, and hosted many visitors in the village.
