Having a secure family unit can influence and shape behaviour but will also help develop a child’s physical and emotional needs.
It is always our mission to reintegrate children back with their families; however, we also understand that in some cases, like Eric’s, this isn’t always possible and so we need to provide for children who can’t return home. We create family environments through our family homes that children can truly call their own.
Eric moved to Tsekwe House with his twin brother Sam and two other children from Open Arms who also had not home to return to. They live together as any other family with their foster Mother Anna and her son Elton.
Eric is an inspiration, and his ambition to succeed is admirable. His dream is to go on to University and become a Lawyer - a dream that he is determined to achieve, and which Open Arms will support.
Our family homes and nursery schools are vital for those who can’t return to a family home. They provide the security and the safety that family offers, and children grow up in a loving home, equipped with an education they would otherwise not have access to.
