The smiles of the children you help at Open Arms will stay with you long after you return home. Volunteering is an opportunity to help vulnerable children who appreciate the care, and see the amazing difference this makes. You will develop your skills, experience a rich African culture, explore Malawi, and meet some great people.
Each day I help feed the babies, help in the kitchen with dishes or preparing snacks and lots of play time with the babies.I also often visit the older kids at Harrogate House and play or do tasks like drawing or learning new numbers and words with them.
It’s very special here to be able to see the children grow so quickly and get noticeably stronger and more confident everyday. Each child has such a unique and strong personality and it’s amazing to see the bond they have to each of the mothers.
Working with the house mothers every day, you really get to learn about them and their culture. Everyone is also incredibly friendly so will always help you out or show you something new.
Your donation will help children in Malawi grow up healthy with the love of a familyDonate
