In 2010, she began work on a social enterprise called Project Migration, which produces apparel at a women-run eco-factory in Africa with the purpose of building water wells and supporting medical clinics in areas of extreme poverty. The objective of the enterprise is to provide job opportunities for single mothers, along with access to clean water and medical care for those in need. Celebrities, like Cameron Diaz, Alicia Keys, Adrian Grenier, and Bradley Cooper have worn Project Migration clothing or accessories. As a result of the project and by November 2011, clean water has been made available to 750 people and more than 1,500 women and children now have had access to medical care.

Rowland became a contributor to The Huffington Post in 2015.
