My name is Jane Farris and I’m the new CEO of WOW.

I’m excited to be representing WOW, to meet with our partners
and to be walking alongside them.

It is such a blessing to be working with WOW’s strong and committed team to move forward Jim and Kathy Cantelon’s mission. In fact, it is an answer to a prayer. Some months ago, I asked God to use me in His highest expression. In any way. In any part of the world. It is to WOW that I have been commissioned and for this I could not be more grateful.

I am excited to be in Africa on my first trip as WOW's CEO, to see first-hand the fruits of our partners’ labors in Zambia, Malawi and Uganda. Among our biggest strides of late:

- inroads in Gender Based Violence mitigation in Malawi

- assisting the plight of girls once in captivity of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), and

- supporting more than 2,500 students in their education in Zambia.

I will be sharing videos from my trip on this website and on social media -- follow us on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-date reports from my travels.

WOW’s blessings continue to multiply through all of those who have had a hand in helping God’s most vulnerable; the orphan and the widow. We value your support.
