Sponsorships

ROWAN is a faith-based community of widows, widowers, caregivers and orphans affected by the plight of HIV/AIDS. We have been in existence since 2008 and are now supporting over 300 members across 30 villages. Together we create holistic approaches toward poverty alleviation, resulting in self-reliance. Every widow a leader; every orphan a beloved child.

3 pillars of our sponsorship program:

  1. Secure financial needs for individual members

  1. Establish relationship between the donor and the child/widow. 

  1. Empower someone in need toward self-reliance and graduate ROWAN sponsorship

$38 a month helps provide:

  • Medical Care including HIV medication, pre-natal care and general needs
  • Education and Literacy costs including materials, uniforms and school fees
  • Micro Enterprise Start-ups, savings groups and extensive business trainings
  • Nutritious meals weekly
  • Spiritual nourishment every Saturday at our center

What makes our program unique?

ROWAN supports the widow or orphan until they are able to sustain themselves with no cut off age. We see students finish school and begin their first jobs; we train widows on starting their own businesses, save and take care of their family. You get to be a vital part of their journey!
