Why I choose ROWAN

I have a daughter who is my “why” and my reason for trying each day to be, and do, better.  She is my greatest joy and my surprise miracle.  Becoming a mother opened my heart in ways I never knew possible and I know I am not alone in feeling this way.  Bringing a child into your life changes your priorities, your way of looking at life, and adds to that innate desire we have as humans to make things better. 

My husband and I had been married many years before our surprise miracle arrived.  During that time, I looked for ways to support children and families around the world and in that search I came across ROWAN.  As I read through the information online, I knew I had finally found the organization I had been looking for.  My heart melted, and tears filled my eyes, as I read of a beautiful baby girl and her grandmother who were in need of sponsorship and I quickly signed up to help sponsor them.  That was almost ten years ago, and I have been a supporter of ROWAN ever since.

What do I love about ROWAN?  I love that I am able to donate what I can afford and that I can be sure my donation is being used to directly help people in Uganda.  I love that ROWAN strives to help widows and children better their lives through education and the opportunities that brings.  I love that ROWAN follows the teaching found in Matthew 25:40, “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” (KJV)  And I love that ROWAN is led by love.  

My name is Kirsten, and I am grateful to say that I am a ROWAN supporter.
