Partnering for Success in Bergnek


Vancouver, November 21st, 2013 - We are establishing new partnerships each day, it seems, in Bergnek. The great thing about what we are doing is that people are moving with us and acting on their intentions to create change and growth for the people of Bergnek.

News from the field - GirlStuff.Period - My Trip to Cradock


My name is Keith (Keabetswe) and I work along side My Arms Wide Open in South Africa on  a number of community projects under Bergnek Community Projects.  First of all I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who were involved in this project, including Lunapads and their Pads4Girls program, Warren and our partners in Uganda, AFRIPads. It took me 12hrs to get to Cradock, this ended up being one of the best trips I have ever had.

2,500 opportunities to contribute to Food SecurityDonateNowButton-sm

The My Arms Wide Open Vertical Food Wall at the Ray-Cam Cooperative Centre, in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside is ready! We now have 2,500 Opportunities for you to get directly involved in supporting Food Security in the Community. The My Arms Wide Open® team works as a volunteer organization supporting the causes and the initiatives identified by the communities themselves that we are invited into. Without the financial support that each of you, our donors, provide our work would be that much more difficult and we would have to wait to assist the people we do. We are grateful for each of you.
