We are calling upon everyone, companies, schools and individuals from across the whole of the UK to collect and donate stamps to raise valuable funds to help support the disadvantaged babies and children in our care.
On Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December 2019, the Great Scottish Christmas Charity Festival will celebrate its 12th year in Inverleith Park, Edinburgh. With over 30 charity stalls to browse around (and tea, coffee and snacks to keep you warm), Open Arms Malawi would like to invite you to take part in one of the weekend activities!
The World Food Programme estimates that malnutrition costs Malawi US$597 million a year, or 10.3% of GDP. Education can provide a route out of poverty, but Malawi’s schools have amongst the worst teacher pupil ratios in the world. Over 70% of Malawi’s children do not progress to secondary education, because they need to help cultivate crops, care for sibling or bring in a family income.
Hello! My name is Nicole Loughlin, a 22-year-old from Ireland! Throughout the past year I have visited Malawi three times. The culture, the people and their kindness, along with my drive to make a difference and combat the developing/developed divide continues to lure me back to the ‘Warm heart of Africa’.
