Recently we posted a few flashbacks featuring the art of beading (part 2) as practiced by the people of ROWAN. Today we go back to 2010 to see more about the process of hand making the beads themselves. Another big step in enabling ROWAN members to learn more about starting a business & earning something from their work.

Flashback to 2010

These flashback photos are an engaging way for us to share the progression of life here at ROWAN, while sharing new (& old) projects that we love. After over a decade, ROWAN (through your donations) has helped a lot of deserving people live a better, more fulfilled life. Enabling them to grow personally, spiritually & financially. Thanks so much to everyone who has helped to make all of the ROWAN projects possible.
