LoveROWAN

Your generosity funds education, entrepreneurship & health care for orphans & widows in Uganda. Our Christ-centered programs ensure that you leave a legacy of hope.

Don’t miss your chance to change the world.

It all starts with sponsoring one person:

Sponsoring is Easy and Impactful

Step 1: View those who need a sponsor.
Step 2 : Pick who you want to sponsor.
Step 3: Sign up & set up recurring payments.
Step 4: Message your sponsee through our online portal.

Become a sponsor so you can:

EXERCISE INTEGRITY: Your external actions align with your beliefs about making a difference.

EXPERIENCE BELONGING: Join world-changers who bring hope to the marginalized.

LEAVE A LEGACY: Help one person who will, in turn, impact countless others.

Sponsors help programs run for just $1.22 per day.

This small amount makes a huge difference because:

• ROWAN maintains very low operating costs

•The exchange rate means a dollar goes a lot further in Uganda than it does in the U.S.

For over 15 years, local leaders with skin in the game have designed our programs. We've seen how powerful & effective it is to combine indigenous-led programming with U.S. -based support & accountability, and we're committed to keeping it this way. Our dear friend and advisor, Sam Voorhies, explained ROWAN best:
