I came for 2 weeks in the organization, it was my first experience of volunteering. Paul dedicates his life to the school and tries to do his best to help these children to have a good education. Everybody was so welcoming: Paul and his wife Promise, they really took me into their family, the teachers and the children. I really met fantastic people there and I learnt african culture. you can help for so much things there. Even if my stay was not long, it was really difficult to leave the organization and all these amazing people.Thank you to everyone, it was really a great experience that.I'll never forget

During 3 weeks I had my first contact with african culture while also having my first volunteering experience. I tried to runaway from african countries which are already known in terms of tourism. Coming from Brazil, I can say I had one of the best experiences in my life. The reality in the organization is completely different and it didn't stop me from learning so much about life and trying my best to support Paul, Promise, the teachers and the children. the organization and the school are fantastic and seeing Paul's effort really touched my heart. Wish all the best to everyone involved.

This was my first experience as a volunteer. If you are looking for a real experience, where there are many things to do, this is the place. Children's smiles are priceless. I left with a heavy heart and the desire to come back again.

My time with Paul at Manwya was wonderful! Paul is such a kind & selfless man willing to do so much for the children, the teachers & the community. He made sure i was comfortable the entire time & was accommodating to any of my needs. His passion for his school is inspiring! Choosing to stay here will be one of the best choices you could make! Promise is Paul's wife and is so lovely & fun to be around, the both of them will make you feel at home! Everyone there at the house & in the villages are so kind & i felt welcomed by everyone my entire stay. Thank you Paul for this amazing experience!
