Our All-Volunteer run network personally visits vulnerable communities in Mali and Uganda to plan, build and facilitate water wells and medical clinics. We teach village leaders how to self-sustain the facilities and provide them on-going support. The result is improved quality of life of among village members and lowered mortality rates.
Women are the base of developing communities. When they are disempowered/abused, without means to support their family, there is little hope for the children they raise. At Opening Doors Worldwide, we empower women in Uganda by providing shelter for those facing domestic violence as well as skills training, job placement and micro-loan funding so that they can rise above menial jobs. This creates lasting and positive change throughout the entire village community.
Many Ugandan children don’t receive an education because their families are in poverty. Those children end up working menial jobs to help support their family and the cycle of poverty continues. At Opening Doors Worldwide, we sponsor such children to receive primary education. The result is a brighter future for the child and future generations to come.

Opening Doors Worldwide built a well for us right next to the maternity and medical clinic. Now everyone in the village has access to clean water and safe water. The impact is tremendous! We no longer see a high rate of illness and child deaths and we are very grateful!
