During our visit we initiated the first of our programs within the community. The basis of the program is to first work with mindset to support the participants to get from their bellies and heads into their hearts. As part of the process we then establish working with the participants and with local business leaders and community leaders what the real needs of the community are. We then identify opportunities to provide those needs from within the community assessing current available skills and the skills that need to be supplemented and transferred.
The video that follows gives you a few snapshots of the initial progress the participants have made through the process.

The My Arms Wide Open™ Charitable Foundation, was established to provide support and collaboration with mothers, children, and youth in South Africa, enabling them to build sustainable communities and responsible businesses. With stronger families, communities emerge as a solid foundation for society. In the process they re-engage fathers to repair the family unit. In our definition, mothers include women who are caring for children and include child-led households, working within the pre-teen and teen groups. Fathers include the fathers, young males and adult males within the community.
