Our work focuses around 5 main causes for communities in Africa and it all starts with the Women and Children in those communities:


The My Arms Wide Open® Foundation was established to provide support and collaboration with mothers, children and youth in Southern Africa, enabling them to build sustainable communities and responsible businesses. With stronger families, communities emerge as a solid foundation for society.

Building Stronger Communities

My Arms Wide Open is focused on five program areas that will help the people and communities we serve, realize their potential. Our work is led by the communities we serve. Every project begins with listening – we ask people to identify the obstacles and opportunities. Then we apply our knowledge, networks and entrepreneurial know-how to enable community members to collaborate and become agents of change.

Open your heart to the exciting possibilities of change.
