Our goal in collaborating with JL Zwane is to transfer the skills and content around the program so that they can be delivered effectively entirely in Xhosa. We are planning sessions, working direclty in the community to take place in Gugulethu and Mulengeni outside Mthatha in the next 6 months. Working with Rev. Dr. Spiwo Xapile at the JL Zwane Community Centre we believe we increase our opportunity for success.

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.
