As we come to the end of 2020, Charlie reflects on the year at Open Arms Infant Homes in Malawi. There have been many challenges but the hard work and dedication of the team means that we can continue to adapt services to best serve the children and families we work with.
It has undoubtedly been a year like no other and we are beyond grateful to you for your support and our wonderful team in Malawi for their dedication and commitment. As we look back on 2020, we do so with gratitude while wishing you and your loved ones a relaxing and peaceful Christmas period.
‘We may be small, but we have a mighty impact. We don’t grab the headlines, but that doesn’t bother us. We’re on the frontlines helping to empower people all over the world to fight back against coronavirus and against poverty.’ Small International Development Charities Network.
Mussa’s home village, houses one of our community owned nurseries and feeding stations. When he returns home, Mussa will be able to attend for a daily meal of protein-rich porridge, early education and a secure place to learn. His development will include sensory skills, basic hygiene and socialisation with his peers.
“For children in the low-income countries, early learning is a springboard allowing them to catch up with their more privileged peers. Preschool education gives them more chances to do well in primary school later, continue through secondary school, and eventually find work with a better pay”. Global Partnership for Education. At Open Arms, we believe the same.
