Arijah Children’s Foundation, fondly called Arijah Foundation, is named after Arijah, a 17 year old girl born with a genetic condition affecting her mental and physical development. She was born on the tiny Caribbean island of Anguilla where there is little help for people with special needs. In an effort to help Arijah and others like her we, her family, formed a non-profit organization in her name to serve people living with special needs in Anguilla.
Created in 2006, Arijah Foundation opened the Blossom Centre in 2010 as a place from which to provide services to help persons with special needs to blossom and reach their full potential.
In 2018 we opened the Blossom Thriftique where we receive donations of new and gently used items to resell for fundraising purposes and to provide job skills training and employment for youth and adults with special needs. To learn more about our activities follow our Facebook Pages:
