Get involved and help transform children's lives

How are you inspired to help?

By getting involved with Open Arms you can help transform the lives of hundreds of vulnerable children in Malawi. You don’t have to climb a mountain, or run a marathon to help (although you can if you would like!) If you are great at baking cakes, happy to talk in public or would like the life changing opportunity of volunteering, there is way to get involved to suit you.
