The best part of everyday was working with Captain in the garden ❤️. He was very welcoming and ready to share his knowledge with me. Caroline (the wife of Astone-the director) was the main person I interacted with daily when she provided the meals. There was limited communication and contact with Astone during my stay. There also seems to be 2 or 3 orphans at the project. So the project was just gardening for 1 hour each day while I was there. Overall, except for a few things and people, this was disappointing.

I had a fantastic time in the project with Astone, Caroline and the whole village and would recommend this project to anyone visiting Livingstone. I know I learned more in my time than I imparted from the kids to Captain on the farm. I loved the mornings on the farm helping out and time with the kids, playing football or games each day. You are given license to support in whatever way you choose. I compliment Astone and the team on the work in the village and community. The accommodation is excellent and my compliments to Caroline on the great food and plenty of it so a truly unique experience

I had an amazing time in the project. Astone and Caroline are really amazing people and excellent hosts. The local people are all very friendly, warm, and welcoming as if you're part of their family. It's an incredible opportunity to be immersed in authentic Zambian culture and make a valuable difference in the lives of the kids there. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an authentic, memorable, and impactful volunteering experience in Africa/Zambia. I really wish I could've stayed longer.

I spent two weeks in the project in August/22. Astone from the beginning was super friendly, flexible and polite and the question of picking me up from Livingstone increased my sense of security. The project has a lot of interaction with the community - especially with the kids who have made it a much better experience. The period we were on was on vacation, many of the children were visiting family members so I was able to share my work time to help in the Garden. Another strong point was that Astone organized a dinner with the presentation of traditional dances - amazing

One of the best experiences I've ever had. The kids from the project and the village are just amazing, we played a lot, I prepared some football training for them, which they loved Astone and his wife Caroline are amazing people, they really care about the kids and the community and da serious social work, trying to create a sustainable community for them, the kids and the football project. I had a really good experience about how life is in the project village, local food, culture and their passion. Loved everything and it was hard to say goodbye to the kids, hope I come back any day soo
