Open Arms Malawi
At Open Arms we believe that every child has the right to survival and development. We provide essential care for Malawi’s orphaned and abandoned children, giving them the chance to achieve their potential within the love and security of a home. Our principal aim is to support the return of fit and healthy toddlers to their extended families. We work closely with local communities to build brighter futures for children and their families for generations to come.
We were set up when a local Harrogate family moved out to Malawi in 2000 to take over the running of a small infant home. We have partnered closely with Ashville College, the Harrogate Advertiser and many generous supporters, businesses and community associations who have not only travelled to Malawi to see our work but have volunteered their time back in the UK. Together we have transformed the lives of over 6,000 children in Malawi over the last 20 years.
