Learn and lead at school

Open Arms is all about giving children in Malawi a better chance in life, so we love it when children in schools get involved. 

School groups continue to be central to the Open Arms community and we have enjoyed partnerships with schools such as Ashville College, Kingswood School, George Watson College, Lancing College and Stewart's Melville College (ESMS) who have given tremendous support over the years.

We are grateful for each and every individual who chooses to take time to share news from Malawi and champion our work to bring life changing benefits to children in Malawi.

What teachers say

Queen Elizabeth School, Kirkby Lonsdale  “Our friends in Malawi are absolutely thriving, and we have gained so much, in so many ways. Raising funds has been a daunting task, but at the same time a real pleasure. The trick has been to mobilize the whole school community. Supermarket bag packing, quizzes, afternoon teas, sponsored walks, Christmas craft stalls, you name it, and we’ve done it!” Pete Weston
Stewarts Melville College, Edinburgh   “We have seen that bringing the global dimension to Citizenship and lessons across the full breadth of the curriculum can enrich educational experiences and outcomes for young people, helping them to challenge stereotypes, respect cultural differences, and raise their global awareness.” - Gavin Park
