I was incredibly welcomed by the whole community. I got to stay in the town for a few days to get comfortable with the host family, and then I stayed at the organization so I didn't have to pay for transportation each day. They made sure I had everything I needed, food, water, medical supplies, clean clothes, etc. They worked with Mr to learn their language to be able to greet people. And the kids were all so welcoming and willing to learn.

Thank you so much, you have done a lot for us, can’t describe all you have done, you have Görden heart ❤️ we hope you can be our organization ambassador. God bless you for all you have done ✅



For two weeks I was a kind of teacher. Could help out there. I didn't have to pay for the stay (accommodation). The facilities of the accommodation was very simple. I had a own room but only with a mattress and a duvet cover. The kitchen wasn't very clean. No floating (toilet, tap, shower, etc.). When I had a shower I had to fill up the basket with water. This was a really Africa experience. I did a financial supporting there. Bought many the organization supplies and toys for the kids. Unfortunately I didn't receive a gratitude. You can live and work there but everythink is very simple!

I visited the organization during the big holidays. It was a blast to work together with the locals and build playground for the kids. There is so much to do and any skills are needed. From our work I created a lot of content for Social Media. Check it out! It is tremendous.
