On a Mission
About 75 km northeast of East London, South Africa on a beautiful 70-acre hilltop property sits the Open Arms Home for Children. As an established nonprofit organization, registered in South Africa and the United States, Open Arms provides love and security to children orphaned by the AIDS pandemic.

We are committed to raising the children in our care to adulthood. Our model is to place 6-8 children in cottages with a permanent house mother or father. The children go to pre-school on our property and elementary, high school and college in the larger community. We aim to serve the whole child: developmentally, physically and spiritually.
We are a human service organization. As such, our children are served regardless of background, race, economic status or religion. Likewise, our donors come from all faiths and backgrounds, united in simple service to children in need.
God has blessed this project since its inception with caring donors, staff and volunteers. We feel privileged to carry out this important work.
LIKE OUR KIDS, WE KEEP GROWING!
We host events all year long to support these beautiful children. Come on out and join us! We are just ordinary people with a shared passion for helping underprivileged kids.
