Excellent experience! Emmanuel and his family are such a great people, and they made me feel like a part of this family. Children are beautiful, you can learn a lot and Emmanuel is always there to help you! My staying there was the most beautiful thing in my life! So, if you are looking for place to go, just go there, don't doubt, you won't regret! Asante sana for everything everyone (Emmanuel, teachers and children) done to me! It was a beautiful trip, see you next year!



It was a wonderful experience. The NGO's founder is so careful and attentive, providing us a safe and clean place to stay. The food is simple, but cooked with much care and it is delicious. If you need to get anything, they will be happy to go along with you. The kids are unbelievably affectionate. You may have difficulties to teach because of their natural language (Swahili), but the founder and his staff will be there to help you. Everyone is very grateful for any help you can provide. If you are looking for a simple but awesome and unforgettable experience, this is the place for you.



Uma experiência linda e muito gratificante. As crianças são simplesmente maravilhosas e é muito divertido conviver com elas. O Emmanuel é um excelente host, faz de tudo para ajudar e me senti em casa desde o primeiro dia.



Essa experiência com o Samuel foi muito válida, uma família que te faz se sentir acolhida, em um local simples, mas com uma comunidade super acolhedora.

Acredito que a experiência na escola poderia ter sido mais completo, se o professor fosse mais envolvido, e poderiam existir mais opções de trabalho com a comunidade.
