We live in a quiet village which is near Mwanza city, the second largest and fast growing city of our country, Tanzania. The area is home of the Sukuma Tribe which is the largest tribe in our country. Volunteering at our project gives our volunteers opportunity to visit this place as much as they can during their free time. Also the volunteer can get a chance to visit Saanane Island, the marvelous Island found in city area. We care for less fortunate children at our centre and this is a noble cause which our volunteers really like to leave a mark to the lives of these kids through volunteering. The future and development of these kids are in jeopardy and we are the only hope to create a better future for them, so, a volunteer to these kids is a family member and not a stranger. The early childhood care and education is a new concept in our educational system through out the country, when someone decide to volunteer at our centre he/she is the really help and needed one and very unique. By volunteering at our place, a volunteer can get a chance to go for a Safaris or tour at an affordable cost with reliable companies.
I was born in 1986 and my father refused to take his parental responsibility since my mother informed him that she is pregnant. My mother struggled a lot with me to give me the nonetheless education I have. I discovered myself how hard was it for me to get education and this made me to think about helping the most destitute rural children. I am a charming and open person working day and night to find a way to make these kids realizing their dreams. I have a very nice staff and any volunteer who have already met them and our kids always feel so happy and wanting to be here with us. We are all cooperative to our volunteers and care for them so much because their time with us mean a lot.

William and the Savvy Brain Academy school is the best you can hope for when looking for a volunteer program in Africa. It is impossible not to be in love with the children and not to enjoy the happiness of the local people in Bujora Village. William treated us like we were family, and was always ready and avalible to help us with anything we needed. I really hope everybody gets to have an experience like this one day, as it would certainly contribute to make the world a better place!

This was for sure the best experience I have ever had in my life. William was the best host you can ask for, very good at communicating and was always very respectful and understanding. The whole experience made me open my eyes and reflect on life in a whole other way. The teachers are very good at teaching the children and they will help you with whatever you need. William is a true hero and one of the kindest and smartest people i have met in my life, the energy and commitment he has to his project is incredible. If you are thinking of going all i can say is YES you won't regret it!

This experience changed my life. Meeting William and the kids in the project was a giant call from society to me on how to life a better life and how to be more grateful for everything. The hours at school are longer, but William is super flexible on adjusting it into you. He was like a big brother to me, constantly making sure I was ok. He is super polite! I am so glad my first experience with the Worldpackers was there, because it was amazing!

I would recommend this experience to anyone who wishes to see more of the world. William will give you a feeling that you are home. I was only here for the minimum period of 2 weeks, but still had a rich experience. I met lots of people in Williams circle and went around the city with locals. Definitely a nice break from everyday life, and a worthwhile cultural experience. If you are unsure about teaching, you can help around the school in other ways too, such as writing homework or playing with the children
