The whole experience exceeded our expectations, we could not wish for a better one!
The accommodation was super clean and spacious and offered us privacy. We ate home cooked delicious traditional food which catered to our wishes and needs:)
The program was very diverse. We got to know the women community; their homes, stories and businesses, worked with the local police and prison, visited the church and the local medical facilities...
We had such an amazing time with Ronald, Justine and their whole family that we're gonna go back to spend Christmas with them!
