Passion Fruit Planting with Joy

Excerpt from Joy, our current ROWAN intern:
One of the current micro enterprise projects ROWAN initiated is Passion Fruit! I had the honor to take part in the preparation and planting of the very first passion fruit trees. I joined 20-25 widows from the ROWAN program and what a privilege it was for me to stand next to these beautiful and strong women. I absolutely loved watching them in community with each other, laughing, and working alongside one another. Each one of them carry their own story of hope and it is evident in every way.
Not only is this Passion Fruit garden going to provide income for these women, it is the beginning process for the entire community to adopt and benefit from the fruitful harvest. The trees we planted created a demonstration garden which will be a way for the entire community to learn and begin to plant in their own homes! ROWAN’s hope is to equip and empower the entire community which will in turn have a greater impact on all those in Mawanga and beyond!
