I believe everything is possible

Written by

I've learned that it is possible


My name is Lundi. I remember meeting Warren and his team in the beginning of 2011 and learning about the program they where going to run, Iziko Labahlali. This was not the first time it was being run in Cradock and it was good to be able to talk to people who had done the program. They seemed different. They talked differently. I remember thinking that I wanted to find out why. I entered the program in March and at first I listened and watched as people spoke and expressed themselves through their art, their words, and their emotions. It started to feel comfortable, safe. I started to participate. I was alone in Cradock through my own choice, far away from my wife and my children. Suddenly, I felt open to changing that.

GirlStuff.Period Update and Season's Greetings

Gratitude: GirlStuff.Period Update

DonateNowButton-smThank you! for your gracious and generous support of GirlStuff.Period in the GlobalGiving Girl Effect Challenge 2012!! As you may know, the My Arms Wide Open® team works as a volunteer organization to support the causes and the initiatives identified by the communities we are invited into, to work with. 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 and all of our supporters.

Connecting the dots

Written by

Connecting the dots... enabling development from within

DonateNowButton-smOur family, Bergnek:   What has become evident as we work in communities is that we must work alongside community from within and we must support and create continuity with each step we take building upon the previous one. In many communities, they have seen people and organizations come and go, but they see very few that come back. Each time we return, we are greeted with a smile and "You came back!?". In creating trust, we create hope and our hope and belief is that each of the communities we work with are a part of our family. A family that works and grows, together. A family that always 'comes back'.
