Here at ROWAN we are so blessed and fortunate to have many individuals and organizations that partner with us in ministry. Networking with so many people around the globe has advantages and we are constantly blown away by the generosity we experience. One of our most recent donations came in the form of baby carriers.
Solly Baby Wraps just gave us about 30 of these functional and fashionable (not to mention comfortable) baby carriers for us to distribute among women in our programs.
we believe our wraps bring you closer to your little one, physically and emotionally, while simultaneously giving you the freedom and comfort to take on daily life…With the help of many other people, we were able to create a truly beautiful, functional, and safe product that I am proud to share with caregivers.
~Elle, regarding the philosophy and design of Solly Baby Wraps
We are so excited to have these as a resource to our women — many of whom are working hard to provide for their families while caring for young children. These wraps will give them the ability to have their babies close. Soon our mamas will be able to safely and comfortably wear their babies! Thank you so much Solly Baby!
KiKi Leigh McDaniel just spent a week in Mawanga, serving alongside Pastor Paul and learning from the ROWAN staff while ministering to the people there. Here is an excerpt of her experience and what she wanted to share with our readers.
“Abundant thanks to you, Pastor Paul, his family, and the entire ROWAN staff for giving me a life-changing experience last week.”
After serving with various ministries throughout Uganda over the past 4 months, ROWAN has been one of the best experiences I’ve had since being in country. The ministry is not just buildling projects, but they are building people who will change this country for the better. ROWAN gives aid where needed as well as practical skills for future development.
The business program harbors an environment of sustainable economic growth through small business. I am delighted to see these new entrepeneurs thrive as they turn their passions into business. Furthermore, the children’s Saturday program has been the most encouraging program I’ve seen so far. The children are given supplemental foundational education, creative time, and a Biblical foundation to live as children of the Most High. I truly believe education is the key to advancement in any culture and I’m grateful to witness this in practice.
The fruits of this ministry are so evident amongst the daily lives of the people of Mawanga. The JOY that comes from their beneficiaries is contagious and laughter fills their lives. I am so thankful for this opportunity to visit “the bush” and live amongst some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. ~KiKi Leigh McDaniel
Perhaps this testimony struck a chord in your heart and you want to be involved too! There is always room for more volunteers to partner with us in ministry. And the villagers want to welcome you to Mawanga, where everyone is family.
