I had an amazing experience in Chamazi, where I felt included in the community from the very first day. Emmanuel and Mama took really good care of us volunteers and made sure we were a part of their family. Staying in Chamazi was an experience I will never forget also because it gave me great joy being in school with all those smart and happy children. I highly recommend the Samaritan Education Centre - the only regret I have was staying for only 3 weeks..

I had an amazing time in Chamazi! Emma and his family is so kind, show us all about their culture, specially the food, that was delicious! Also, I loved the time spent with the kids, teaching them English, or even, just hanging out and playing!
