Food Security ... Starts with Water

In many cases in both developing countries and some rural areas in developed countries the first step to establishing food security is to first establish reliable access to clean, safe water. It sounds logical doesn't it. Yet many communities and whole regions in Africa suffer from the lack of reliable and clean water sources.

What IS SO exciting... about 'One Brick at a Time'?

The My Arms Wide Open ‘one brick at a time’ project is part of our integrated, collaborative and sustainable community development model, that gets its leverage through the simple act of listening; really listening to the community members and empowering and supporting them to create solutions that come from within to meet the needs they have identified as a community. It really is about seeing what's right with the world around us and seeing opportunities and turning those opportunities into action.
