The Rose of Sharon Foundation (RoSF) was birthed as a revelation in James 1:27 which the Founder received from God during prayer, which says: “Pure and defiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world” (NKJV)
We are an NGO focused on alleviating the plight of widows and orphans. We design and execute programmes that give financial independence and educational opportunities to widows, their children and orphans.
A journey that started with three (3) widows on 23rd May, 2008, has amalgamated into a network of almost a thousand widows today. Since inception, RoSF has empowered over 3000 widows through vocational skills and awarded scholarships to 1,366 widow’s children and 86 orphans. The loans to widows are interest free and the scholarships have no conditions attached. It has also provided accommodation for residential/business purposes for 82 widows. Furthermore, in conjunction with our partners, we have provided some free healthcare checkups and free legal services to our widows.
RoSF is in affiliation with Rose of Sharon Glorious Ministry International, to provide spiritual strengthening through the God we serve, give comfort and encouragement where the opportunity presents itself for the widows, their children, orphans and the neglected in our society.
Our board comprises people of integrity, professional excellence and achievement. Our work is produced by faith, our labour prompted by love and endurance inspired by hope.
