The Any1CanSM Project models how any individual or group of people—no matter the age, gender or geography—can be a voice and force for positive change in the world.
The Any1Can Project is an arts-based global service learning initiative that allows students to learn about seven complex global issues, make a difference to a social action project, and celebrate and reflect on the difference they've made.

Who originated the Any1Can project?
Charlotte-based 501c3 non-profit Mothering Across Continents (MAC) developed the Any1Can Project to support students and teachers as an extension of MAC's project The Global ClassSM. The mission of MAC is "Adopting Dreams. Raising Tomorrow's Leaders." MAC was the first non-profit to successfully start and finish a permanent primary school in Unity State, South Sudan, since the country's independence. Currently, projects are underway on four continents. Learn more about MAC by visiting our website.
