Our Mission

to improve lives one step at a time


Our Mission

Opening Doors Worldwide improves lives and delivers hope to the poorest parts of the world by building medical and maternity clinics, providing safe drinking water, educating children, empowering women, fighting hunger and poverty through micro-loans and business training.

As an all-volunteer 501(C)(3) nonprofit, we passionately embrace the idea that all people, regardless of status, deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

We strongly believe that health, education, and jobs are the key to erasing poverty worldwide. By establishing self-supporting and self-sustaining projects in areas that we personally visit and oversee through our volunteer on-site coordinators, we invite you to join us in “improving lives one step at a time.”

Our Vision

Big change starts with small steps

At Opening Doors Worldwide, we believe big change starts small. Through first-hand experience, we see the challenges that developing countries face and also see the opportunities to overcome them. Through thoughtful action and working together with our beneficiaries, we create change that helps to improve lives.

We work towards a vision of equality where all people have access to clean water, shelter, medical care, education and opportunity to provide for one’s self and family. We are making this vision a reality through our various programs. We develop these programs with a spirit of loving action, thoughtful guidance, graceful humility and endless enthusiasm.
