Meet the ROWAN Team

From engineers to nurses, pastors to development workers, Americans to Africans to Singaporeans, the ROWAN team has one thing in common: Vision.

Each person with their own calling & passion for ROWAN brings their own unique way of loving & providing for those who live on the margins. With local leadership & international support, ROWAN works as a team to empower widows & orphans in Uganda by saying “yes” to the impossible.
