As an organization, ROWAN is based on the value of personal relationships. We believe we are all neighbors, called to love one another—no matter how many miles, continents, or oceans separate us. As dozens of ROWAN volunteers have experienced, there is nothing more meaningful and rewarding than meeting the women, children, and community of Mawanga face to face. If you feel compelled to meet your neighbors and to bring hope from afar, please contact us. ROWAN would love to bring you on board.
