Take action to save lives

Nearly 1 out of every 5 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water-related disease. A frightening statistic! 

At My Arms Wide Open® we plan on fixing that, working with our Arizona State University EPICS partners SafeSIPP, by providing the means for rural women and children to not only transport water but to purify it in the process.

Will you help me build a better tomorrow?

Starting out

When I started the My Arms Wide Open Foundation, I really only had a vision of what I wanted to accomplish. A vision of something I have been passionate about my whole life; working along side women and children to create a future. A future they could believe in. I knew that we would help save lives, solve some important problems, and give more people in rural South and Southern Africa a chance to live their dreams. Our Annual Board meeting at the end of April this year really underscored the importance of us doing what we set out to do, with your support.

Working from a philosophy where there is zero dependency on the initiating NGO

My Arms Wide Open® is a Canadian Federally registered foundation that was established to work with mothers, children and youth to create change in rural communities by stimulating and creating economic activity around autonomous, sustainable community based businesses, food security, infrastructure, education systems and mentoring and leadership focused entirely on the needs of their communities. The first community based business established, was Karoo Furniture Manufacturers in Cradock, Eastern Cape, the next is Bergnek Community Projects in Bergnek, Limpopo, which will be a brick-making business.
