ROWAN Christmas 2022 Campaign

Our Mission

In partnership with the global body of Christ, we support and strengthen indigenous organizations and their leaders to meet the spiritual, physical, and social needs of widows and orphans.

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:
