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.
On the 2nd November 2020, we launched our annual Make a Meal Campaign! Each week we have been sharing a different recipe for inspiration, and this week, we've got a Malawian twist on a classic go-to dinner. Have you signed up to take part? Help us fight malnutrition and hunger in Malawi and join our campaign.
Davie is one of the children in Mangochi who is really thriving thanks to the care, nutrition and love he has received since he was welcomed twelve months ago. It is a diificult time for the team at Open Arms as we start to reshape our services to work within the funds available but with your help we will continue to provide vital care for children like Davie.
We need to raise £6,525 to fund five preschools in Malawi for one year - providing safe access to education and a daily meal for 411 children. Throughout the first week of December, any support you can give the The Big Give will be doubled to help us reach this life-changing goal.
