Medical Care and Clean Water

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’s Empowerment

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.

Primary Education

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.

Without safe drinking water, our babies were often sick and sometimes needed to be put in the hospital. With clean filtered water, our children are now healthy. We owe this to Opening Doors Worldwide!
