Rose Namufuta is a mother of eight. Her husband died in August of 2016 and she was left to care for her children. Rose works hard to support her children by digging in neighbouring gardens. She brings her children along with her while she works and will earn about $0.20 a day. She is a new member to the ROWAN family and is very thankful for the love she has been shown.
Rose loves Jesus and has known him for a while now. When the team went to visit Rose in her home and meet her children they sang and prayed with her. Her children Doreen,John and Monica are awaiting sponsors, which will help support Rose, as caring for eight children can be difficult.
Please consider helping to welcome Rose to the ROWAN family by sponsoring one of her three children.

…and if you know anything about the people of Mawanga, they know how to party.
For those of you who don’t know what a party in Mawanga looks like, here’s what you would have seen if you were there. There were 2000 community members, ROWAN members, spiritual leaders, government officials and an international team of 17. The ROWAN women and children danced and put on skits. ROWAN honoured the 32 students who have worked hard and graduated the program. These students were awarded certificates. But the celebrations didn’t stop there.
Tom Dluzak and Troy Nibbelink, who were instrumental in the design of the Hall of Hope were able to make the trip to ROWAN and see the completed project. They were excited to see the work that had been done. With over 8,000 square feet of space, the Hall of Hope will be a pillar in the community and ROWAN will be able to host all their programs and events within these walls!
Help is still needed
The Hall of Hope still needs some work to be fully completed and ready to serve the people the way it was designed. If you are willing to help fill the need of a solar panel and a water pump, please click here and donate.
