Meet sweet little Alian Walwigi. He’s only 1,000 days into his adventure on earth, but he’s wasted no time dreaming up some big plans!
– Alian’s grandmother has taken care of him for his whole life. Despite his age, he lightens his grandmother’s load by helping with chores, whether that involves fetching water from the well, collecting firewood, or sweeping the kitchen.
– His favorite color is green.
– Alian loves goats because they chew grass while shaking their ears.
– Some of his favorite foods include fish and an African dish called matooke, which you can learn more about here!
Alian hopes that someday he will become a pilot! He has always loved to watch planes fly through the sky, and whenever he sees them, he dreams that someday he might be flying up there, too.
Alian’s birthday is just around the corner: October 24th! He’ll be turning three this year. What birthday present could be better than to enable and empower him to pursue his precious dream?!
If you want to be part of helping Alian’s dream become reality,
ROWAN prioritizes meeting the basic human needs of the orphans and widows in Uganda who have been impacted by AIDS, but we don’t stop there.
We support our orphans and widows until they are able to sustain themselves WITH NO CUT-OFF AGE! Furthermore, we walk with them as they pursue self-sustenance, providing everything from healthy, consistent meals and education/literacy classes to medical care and entrepreneurship training.
