Namalo and Kumanda Nursery Schools, situated in rural areas outside the city of Blantyre, have been busy as we approach the festive season. As children attending the nurseries have never been to school before, they aren’t quite used to rules and staff are working hard to establish some routines.
The opening of the first nursery school in Mchocholo village brought the whole community together to celebrate! This milestone would not have been possible without our corporate partners and volunteers so we send out a huge thank you to everyone that has contributed.
Twins, Victor and Vallela, arrived at Open Arms back in 2005 after being orphaned. Suffering complications following childbirth, their mother sadly died and afterwards, their father was nowhere to be found.
Jaffu was born on 13th October 2006, and after losing his father, Jaffu’s mother became very ill while he was still very young. He was one of the first children referred to Open Arms Mangochi by the Social Welfare Department.
