The Open Arms Program has been created to build awareness and education about disabilities while helping to integrate those living with disabilities into the community. The Rotaract Blue Open Arms Program was founded on the belief that people with disabilities deserve the equal opportunity to learn, grow and be respected within our community.

 

The Open Arms Program is a unique program in the Cayman Islands. Rotaract Blue is passionate about highlighting the needs and celebrating the success of persons in our community living with disabilities as well as those who make a difference in their lives on a daily basis.

 

Initiatives under the Open Arms Program include:

  • Open Arms Ceremony: an event which honours caretakers, teachers and others throughout the Cayman Islands who have assisted individuals with special needs as well as persons who have excelled in their lives despite their disability.
  • Christmas at Sunrise: a holiday-themed event to commemorate International Day for Persons with Disabilities where Rotaract Blue members visit the Sunrise Adult Training Centre for fellowship, arts and crafts and Christmas cheer with the clients.
  • Christmas at Maple House: Another holiday themed event that has us giving gifts to the clients of this home
