Rolex Uganda Style

When we say rolex, most of the world thinks of an expensive timepiece. In Uganda, however, it makes people’s mouth water & has absolutely nothing to do with time (unless, of course you have to wait for them to cook).

Ivan’s Wedding!

“I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it.” – The Pointer Sisters (2008) Fewer lyrics could better describe Ivan Kirunze, ROWAN’s faithful literacy teacher, and his radiant bride on their Big Day. In Ugandan culture, men do not typically smile during their weddings, but clearly, nothing could wipe the smile from this man’s face!  Minutes before the wedding ceremony begins, Ivan beams with joyful anticipation. Despite their culturally-rebellious grins, the couple

Birds of Uganda – Variable Sunbird

Uganda’s equatorial location & abundance of fresh water provides it a sheer density of wildlife that can make your head spin. There are (well) over 1000 bird species confirmed in the country alone. And what birds! Some of them look like actual runway models. We have already met the Collard, Malachite & Palestine sunbirds, today we meet the Variable Sunbird (or Cinnyris venustus).

But it’s all just… stuff.” Relatable? Well, you don’t have to feel that way today.  Reports divulge that on Cyber Monday in 2018, Americans spent $7.9 billion. On stuff. We’re still waiting to see what the numbers are this year,
